Look cultured and comfortable in the flowery Dawson City Pullover. This circular yoke pullover harkens back to different times and traditions, but subtle refinements such as the shoulder-hugging yoke, narrow colorwork bands, and opulent seven-color palette bring this pullover from the turn of the nineteenth century all the way to 2018. This pullover is worked seamlessly from the bottom up in the round, saving the colorwork yoke for the knitter’s last, most satisfying reward.
