#1 Colorwork Yoke Pullover

Knitting
August 2018
Aran (8 wpi) ?
18 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches
in Stockinette Stitch
US 8 - 5.0 mm
1314 - 1752 yards (1202 - 1602 m)
38 (40, 42, 44 1/2, 47)" with approx 4" ease

This stunning sweater is deceptively simple, with the body and sleeves worked in the round from their lower edges up before joining and continuing in the round. Apart from the Fair Isle pattern at the yoke and lower sleeves, the pullover is stockinette, save for the lower edges and neck, which are worked in reverse stockinette.

Pullover is worked in the round in 3 separate pieces from the lower edge to the yoke. Then, the pieces are joined above the armhole and the yoked is worked in rounds to the neck edge. The only seaming required is for the underarm stitches.
