The Azucena Sweater is worked in one piece, from the top down, starting with the neckline. It’s entirely seamless. The yoke features a colorwork part. A series of short rows is worked after the colorwork, to shape the neckline of the sweater.

This pattern comes also in a cardigan version.

Attention : when reading the chart for the sweater version, just ignore the first column stitch on the chart, that isn’t in the red frame.
