and the split hem are all worked in 1x1 Rib instead of

DK-weight yarn instead of the worsted-weight detailed in
the pattern. This creates a looser fabric with more drape.

Sample Notes: This sample is worked in two shades,
yarn A for the yoke, cuffs and hem and yarn B for the
body and sleeves. This sample features a split hem and a folded neck.
Note: This sample has a longer body than is written in
the pattern, so to replicate this you should work until
the body measures 35cm / 13¾“ from underarm before
changing to yarn A to work the split hem. Please note
the yardage requirements for the long version and the
cropped version above.

4.5mm / US 7 circular needle, 60-100cm / 24”-40” length
depending on size worked AND 40cm / 16” length
AND needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 8 stitch markers (including one unique for beginning
of round), scrap yarn or stitch holders, tapestry needle

Notes: Cyren is worked top down in the round with raglan
increases and optional short rows at the neck. The raglan increases are worked on either side of a central cable. At the underarm, sleeve stitches are put on hold and the body is worked in one piece. This pattern provides instructions for two hem options, a straight hem or a split hem. The sleeve stitches are picked up and sleeves are worked down in the round. Finally, stitches are picked up around the neckline and either a short neckband, a high neckband or a folded neckband is completed.
Note: The shorter neckband sits better when the optional
short rows have been worked during the yoke shaping.
This pattern has a 2-st Stocking stitch faux-seam running
down each side of the body and underneath each sleeve.

This pattern is a template for a single-colour pullover and
does not include instructions for colour-blocking. Please
consider the ‘sample notes’ for each example if you are
planning to replicate one.
