This romantic cropped pullover with a round yoke and blouse-like balloon sleeves features a floral colour work pattern running around the yoke and along the hem. Inspired by the invisible movements of flowers in search of light.

The design comes with a rather unusual construction.
The yoke is worked from a provisional cast-on bottom up in the round, whereas the body and sleeves — from the provisional cast-on top down. An alternative to knit the yoke top down, if that’s your preferred way, is also provided in the pattern.
