A yoke style sweater, knit bottom up with ribbons of fair-isle travelling up the wide sleeves and around the yoke.

Leggings and penny loafers are the perfect accessories for this Vintage inspired sweater.

Designed with positive ease this tunic style yoke sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up with button details at the hems and wrist. The sleeves and yoke are embellished with fair-isle bands. The neck-line is wide and loose with a soft collar with back button details. Sleeves are long enough for the thumbs to slide through the button cuffs.

The crochet hook is only needed to make a “figure 8” chain for the hem button details.
