Oh Johnny Lee

Oh Johnny Lee is a slim, shaped, long-sleeve, hip-length pullover with a v-neckline, worked in 2 colors.  Its overall texture is garter and rib check (a 10 st by 12 row repeat) trimmed with 1x1 rib at the bodice and sleeve hems, and neckline.  2 ample pockets are lined with the color of the upper bodice, for balance and fun.  The sides of the v-neckline extend up and around to the back, where they are joined and attached to the back neckline – creating a cozy, raised back collar.  This piece is worked in the round, from the bottom up, until the start of the v-neckline where it splits and is worked back and forth.  Stitches are picked up around the neckline for rib trimming. Set-in sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up.
