Striped Reverse Rib Mock Turtleneck

I love this rib pattern! It’s a fairly basic rib, but I decided to turn it around so that what would usually be the wrong side is now the right side. The purl stitches of each color change add unexpected dimension and interest and make you take a second look. It’s fun to see what can happen when you change your perspective and look at ordinary things in a new way!

The pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.
