You’ll turn heads wherever you go in this amazingly stretchy pullover with a striped yoke. Laid flat, this garment is long and super-skinny. But once you pull it on, it skims your curves beautifully.

Notes This pullover is worked in the round from the neck to the bottom of the yoke, then is divided and the body and sleeves are worked separately in the round.

This pullover is designed to have a significant amount of negative ease. Select a size 10–12” smaller than your bust circumference. The yoke is not shaped with increases; the snug fit is due to a combination of needle shaping and the tight rib pattern.
