This is a pattern by the Weststrand sisters.

We have designed a straight and short sweater model with a narrow fit over the shoulders. A multi-coloured yoke with a repetitive pattern decorates an otherwise plain design. Parts of the yoke pattern are also put on the ribbings. The yoke is designed so that only two colours are used at a time and the floats are kept to a minimum length.

The sweater is knitted in stockinette stitch. The body is knitted in the round from the bottom up. Three sets of short rows are made over the back to raise the yoke for a more comfortable fit of the neckline. The sleeves are knitted in the round until you reach the underarm sleeve length. Thereafter, you continue to work the sleeves and body in one piece. You start with raglan decreases and continue with a round yoke with decreases to shape the top of the sweater.

The pattern is written for size 83.5–129 cm (finished chest measurement).
