Bayberry is a soft cocoon with a 5-color, Bohus-inspired yoke. So many color possibilities here! The ultra-deep yoke, roomy fit, and deep ribbed sleeves are quite the recipe for a thing you’ll want to live in during the colder months. Knitted in the round from the bottom up, a provisional cast on is used to add sleeve stitches at the underarms, and the yoke is continued in the round to the neck opening. Sleeve stitches are then picked up from the provisional cast on and worked in the round to cuffs. A little bit of short row shaping raises the back neck.
