~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lazy Saturdays might be best spent with a large mug of tea and a good book, curled up in Barnstorm, an oversized yoke pullover with a splash of stranded colorwork, side slits at the hips and wrists, and a tweak on a simple ribbed stitch.

The pullover is constructed from the bottom up in the round to the armholes. Sleeves are then knit in the round. Body and sleeves are then joined before the colorwork yoke is knit to complete the pullover.
