Adam's Ribs cap-sleeved wrap

Adam's Ribs is my favorite stitch pattern that I've ever designed.
I love that it's reversible - exactly the same on both sides.
And it looks like a cable, but is really a simple rib that wanders by way of a few increases and decreases here and there.
Also, the scalloped edges are really pretty.

This wrap sweater is knit from side to side in one piece.
Cute cap sleeves are shaped using short rows by a very easy technique. The only seams are at the shoulders and a few stitches under the cap sleeves.

Contrary to what intuition might suggest for a horizontal rib, this sweater is very flattering on all kinds of shapes.

Wear it open, or fastened with a pin, or belted.
Or sew or crochet on a buttonhole at the waist and add a nice button.
