Here’s a combination of a classic yoke shape and stranded color-work with an undated finish. As you work from the top down you’ll progress through 3 bands of color which are nestled between 3 rounds of increases resulting in a classic round yoke. A steek paves the way for a zipper and the short sleeves make this a great layering piece for those busy boys and girls.
