This sweater has a mobius band as the yoke. It’s worked from the top down, starting with the yoke, then moving on to the body and then the sleeves. It’s finished with contrasting i-cord bind-offs on each section and short row shaping for the shoulder/neck section. It has minimal seaming: only grafting included is to finish off the i-cord bind-off on each section.

It was designed to have minimal ease. Sizing is based off of the shoulder circumference measurement, so choose your size based off of that instead of the bust circumference.

It uses three colors of dk weight yarn in the current color block trend. Pick your favorite three and play with colors!
