Notes:
The colourwork section on the yoke and hem is knitted back and forth, but you won’t have to purl a single stitch with two colours! Instead you will be working backwards with your left hand after finishing a knit row. It’s super simple and after just a few rows it will feel almost as natural as normal knitting. Just remember to knit in the back loop so that you don’t twist the stitches.

Please make sure not to leave too long floats at the back of your work. I twist the yarn every three stitches to make the back neat and tidy.
