This circular-yoke sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. After the neck ribbing is done, short rows are worked back and forth to shape the neckline.
Then, the lovely, round, patterned yoke is worked in the round until sleeve separation. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold while the body is worked down to the hem. Then sleeve stitches are picked up again to knit the sleeves, with a small repeat of fair isle right before the final ribbing to echo the yoke pattern.
 All stranded patterns are charted.
