Ooooh, this thick ribbing is absolutely gorgeous. 3x3 rib always looks good especially when it's all over such a gorgeous jumper as this. I'm loving the thick cowl neck on the back cover pattern, it goes so well. These are the kind of garments that you can wear anywhere for a bit of pizazz and always be comfortable regardless.
The pattern came out when the King Cole Autumn Chunky was released and it's designed to show off that self striping nature beautifully. If you're looking to make it in a solid colour, though, the King Cole Timeless Chunky would look great.
