Stilwell is a fitted pullover with three-quarter-length sleeves and traditional colorwork motifs adorning yoke and cuffs. The placket neck has two button closures and a slightly raised collar. The garment is worked seamlessly in-the-round with raglan yoke shaping. To keep your tension consistent throughout the garment, I recommend switching to needles 2 to 3 sizes larger for working colorwork sections. Proper swatching will reveal what needle sizes gives you the correct gauge of 4.75 stitches per inch.
