Designed by Meghan Kelly, Llano Del Rio features deep ribbing and a wide center lace panel, while the back has deep ribbing and is all in stockinette stitch. A lovely ribbing detail frames the split hem. The pullover is worked in pieces from the bottom up.
Center sttiches are bound off and then decreases are worked to shape the neck. Once the front and back are complete, short row shaping shapes the shoulders and the shoulders are joined with a 3-Needle Bind Off. The sleeves are worked flat and then seamed into the body. Stitches are then picked up to work the ribbing at the neck.
