I would like to knit this pullover

The body looks like simple seed stitch, but how to do the spiral ribbs?

Does anyone have a stitch pattern for that?

Time for art?

Wow! That is gorgeous! I can see why you would want to make it. For the spiral ribbed part I would just keep shifting the entire rib pattern over by one stitch every row. HTH

i agree about moving the rib pattern over.  if you can think of it like half of a cable, then it might make more sense.

moving the rib over 1 stitch every row gives you an oblique rib.. very pretty.. see it here in socks)

but that is a spiral rib

P1, Make 1, SSK (1) K1, what you need for a spiral rib.

(see something like it, but not a rib here)

Note the difference.. in the spiral rib, the KNIT stitches travel OVER (in the diagonal) the other stitches.

in the green socks you see the make 1's (well of course you do, i used a YO as a make 1!) but if you use a different make 1 AND purl, the hole is smaller, and hidden under the knit part of the rib.

Is that a better spiral rib? It seems like this one really puffs out quite a bit and I've never seen a spiral rib that could do that.

I've had this stitch pattern in my stash for awhile trying to find something to do with it and am thinking it would also work?

R1: K1 P2 K1
R2: K1 P2 K1
R3: P2 K2
R4: P2 K2
R5: P1 K2 P1
R6: P1 K2 P1
R7: K2 P2
R8: K2 P2

Ahh! Thanks for finding this sweater. I am now coveting this turtleneck and the alpaca and mohair oversized sweater/tunic/half dress.  Tongue

I watched the slideshow on style.com about it awhile back, but missed the totally cute turtleneck because its buried under a wool suit (for those of you that want to see it, its photo 10).

look up the odessa hat pattern (I think it's magknits) it has a spiral rib pattern similar to that. Also RPM on knitty has a spiral inside out rib pattern that is very interesting. Cool sweater find!

I love this!!!!

I've got a brand new blog:  *I'm one with the masses now!

Yep Odessa immediately came to mind, you can see that is what the neck is doing, the knit stitches are lining up diagonally.

I keep looking at this, and the way that the ribbing sticks out, almost appears to be a cabling?  I think you could get the puffy look by doing a 3/1 cable where you p1 k1 p1, then continue each row to move one over.  I'm going to try my theory out this afternoon, and if it works, I'll post a picture with instructions.
