Pattern Description from Color Style: “Deborah Newton united stockinette-stitch stripes, contrasting garter ridges, and a simple honeycomb slip-stitch pattern for the colorful pattern play on the cuffs and yoke of this turtleneck pullover. The body is worked in the round to the armholes, as are the sleeves. They are then joined, and the yoke is worked in a single piece to the high foldover turtleneck, which ends with a few bright stripes. The sleeves begin with a strip of the color-work pattern used for the yoke. For the cuff, stitches are picked up along one selvedge edge and worked for a few rounds in single rib. For the top portion of the sleeve, more stitches are picked up along the other selvedge edge and worked in stockinette stitch to the armholes.”
