Cotswold is worked in the round from hem to the armholes, where the sleeves are joined with the body for the raglan yoke. Short rows are used to add length to the lower centre back, and the yoke is worked back and forth to raise the back neck of the sweater. The pattern is knitted in Malabrigo Worsted, a soft single-ply yarn, which knits up fast at 18 stitches over 4 inches.
