Notions: 6 stitch markers (one different from the others),
4 stitch holders or waste yarn, 8 x 11 mm / 7/16” buttons,
yarn needle, sewing needle and thread to match buttons

Notes: The body and sleeves are knit in the round from
the bottom then joined to work the yoke in one piece.
Short row shaping creates a comfortable fit across the
back. The sleeves are intended to be bracelet length so
they may seem to run short – if longer sleeves are desired,
knit to length after sleeve shaping is completed.
Stranded colourwork technique is used for the yoke
motif. Read chart from right to left, bottom to top.
Colourwork can be inelastic if there is not enough slack
in the floats – when in doubt, work the floats looser. Catch
floats with the working yarn when it extends farther than
5 stitches. Stagger these spots so that the unused colour is
not trapped in the same place on consecutive rounds.
