CONSTRUCTION**

Broken is a top-down seamless sweater knit using the compound raglan construction.

The piece is knit in simple stockinette/reverse stockinette stitch. The center travelling slip stitch breaks the pullover in two parts, creating the textured contrast between St st and Reverse St st fabric. The travelling st is moving in a seemingly random uneven line to create the effect of a broken piece.

The yoke is shaped as a compound raglan, which creates a natural line that runs from the neck to the base of the armhole. Yoke instructions are written step-by-step for each size individually.

Stitches for the sleeves are placed on hold at the end of the yoke, then the main body is continued to the hem.

Then sleeve stitched are picked up and worked top down in the round.
