This simple circular yoke sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. The stranded colorwork is worked, then short-row shaping is added to shape the shoulders and neckline. The sleeves and body are separated and worked in the round. Garter stitch cuffs and hem are simple yet elegant. Use your favorite sport or dk weight yarn - semisolids from your favorite hand dyer or wooly wool will work equally well. With its easy and rhythmic colorwork chart, this pattern is suitable for beginners.
