This design is inspired by the neat boat-neck sweaters sported by Mod girls in the 1960s and combines a classic yoke construction with simple shaping and bracelet-length, bell shaped sleeves. A quick and easy project, with some pleasing details and a really sleek finish, this design would be a great introduction to yoke knitting for any beginner. The tri-colour yoke and facings echo the roundels with which Mods adorned their scooters, and the design is named for Keith Moon, himself a Mod icon.
