A classic Fair Isle yoke sweater, knit in Nature Spun Sport from Brown Sheep Co., gets a gentle revamp with a wide scoop neckline and autumn-friendly colors. The front and back are the same: k3, p2 ribbing at the lower edge and stockinette stitch to the armholes. Then, the armhole and yoke are worked in the stranded pattern with raglan armhole shaping.

Colorways used are #720 Ash (A), #104 Grecian Olive (B), #131 Lemongrass (C), #146 Pomengranate (D), #145 Salmon (E)
