This story featured four variations on yoke sweaters, each using a different technique for showing off decreases in a decorative way. This sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up using two strands of brown Sheep’s Top of the Lamb Sport held together; as a substitute, we suggest Brown Sheep’s Nature Spun Sport in Butterfly Blue. The sleeves were knit separately and joined to the body, then the yoke was constructed with wide ribs. A few yards of black yarn, simple running stitches and a tiny flower finish the yoke. Use 2 strands of yarn held tog throughout. Body is worked in one piece to underarm. Sleeves are worked flat separately, then joined to body. Yoke is worked circular.
