On a winter holiday in Stockholm where my wife and I were engaged, we took a blustery boat ride in the waters where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea. This meeting of salty and fresh waters creates what is called brackish water and it inspired this colorwork pattern that was first published as a hat and is now adapted for this jumper pattern.

Amount of main color skeins used in
design: 3 (4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5)

Gauge: 22 sts & 26 rows = 10 cm in stockinette on US6 / 4 mm needles after blocking.

Needles:
US5/3.75mm circular needle, 100 cm (40”) length for ribbing
US6/4mm circular needle, 100 cm (40”) length for body and sleeves

I use the magic loop method throughout so I only need one length of needle througout. Choose the needle length and type that suits your style. Always choose a needle size and yarn combination that will
result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: Tapestry needle for working in ends, 2 removable stitch markers, 2 stitch holders or scrap yarn for holding sleeve stitches.

Notes: This yoke jumper is worked top down in the round. Some knitters have a differing gauge between colorwork and stockinette in a single color. If this is the case, use a different needle size for each part that will achieve the correct gauge throughout.
