This clever sweater is knit from both the top down and the yoke up! Two wide bands of brioche arrow patterning are knit flat and then joined at the ends, forming the base for this cardigan. The body and sleeves are picked up along one side of this brioche band and knit in simple stockinette stitch. The yoke is then picked up on the opposite
side and knit in a decreasing rib pattern. A soft wool-and-cotton blend yarn makes this a great cold-weather layering piece.
