Robin Melanson drew upon several knitting traditions in this round-yoke pullover that mimics the silhouette and style of classic Swedish Bohus Strickning garments.

In addition to bands of Fair Isle color stranding, she worked floats of contrasting colors, then caught the floats into stitches a few rounds later to give the look of embroidery.
