Kennings Yoke is a worsted weight pullover with an easy shape to wear: the fit is classic but relaxed. The body and sleeves are knitted bottom up, in the round, and joined at the yoke to continue working circularly. Short rows lengthen the back at several points during the work. A beautiful motif on both the yoke and above the hem ribbing complete this beautiful design.
