This round-yoked sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. First some short-rows are worked back and forth to create a higher back neck and then the round-yoke is worked top down with a cute ‘bubbly’ color work band to sleeve separation. Some last short-rows are worked to finish the yoke shaping right before sleeve stitches are placed on hold, then the body is worked down to the brioche stitch hem. Sleeves are worked top down to the brioche stitch cuffs last.
Sample is size S worn with 2.5” (6.25 cm) positive ease at bust.
Sample is knit with Kauni Wool 8/2 Solids, a substitute yarn is shown below.
