I just love a circular yoke sweater. If it has stranded work, I like it even better. Something feels very traditional and timeless with circular yoke sweaters.

This sweater is knitted top down. It has a double neck ribbing knitted with the help of provisional CO. The yoke has a traditional pattern explained by chart. The fit if the sweater is loose, but not over sized.
