Color work is my favorite when it comes to knitting! I love mixing colors and motives and counting makes knitting always fun. I designed a classic round-yoke pullover with an updated styling. I added a butterfly pattern to the monochrome body and sleeves, to give them a little texture. Sassy detail, the cuts on the front rib and the different color of the left sleeve.
Notes to pattern:
The pullover is worked on the round . Place marker at the beginning of rnd and move up.
Fair isle pattern has a different gauge than the butterfly pattern, so practically the first decrease of yoke is produced by the gauge difference. It is advised that you try on the knitting after every dic rnd to make sure that it fits properly and to make some alterations if necessary. Measurements for every size are given in parenthesis. When only one measurement is given, it applies to all sizes.
