A yoke sweater with southwestern motives inspired from a vintage pattern. Stranded, intarsia colorwork is worked on the shoulders of the yoke, 3⁄4 length sleeves with K1 P1 ribbing and a slight boat neck. There’s a look and feel to the 1940’s southwest that I love in vintage clothing – earth tones with bright pops of color. I chose acrylic because I like sweaters you can wear against your skin in nicer weather.
