This is a top-down yoke sweater with colourwork patterns all over. The yarn used is Scheepjes Metropolis, of which the colourways are all named after cities around the world, hence the name of this sweater!

This pattern is available for FREE on my linked blog. However, if you’d like an easy printable and/or if you want to support my work, you can buy the PDF version. The PDF version includes even more colourwork patterns!

Tutorial videos for this sweater patten are available on my Patreon page. If you’ve never knit sweaters before, I highly recommend checking them out.
