Ryo features an all-over diamond pattern for the body section. This pattern is worked over stocking stitch, making it subtle. The cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece to the underarms. Fronts and back are worked separately above underarms. Sleeve stitches are picked up and knitted top down. Shawl collar is shaped using wrap and turn short-row technique.
The sample was knit in Artesano Aran. A substitute yarn is shown below.
