A modern shape, and a circular yoke with slip-stitch textures come together in this versatile and fun-to-knit pullover. Each pattern repeat is easily memorized and intuitively progresses throughout the yoke.

Below the deep yoke, stockinette fabric gently drapes with a generous amount of ease and movement, and a delicate hem echoes the textured bands that separate the pattern motifs. Practical three-quarter length sleeves—with a bit of clever underarm shaping—maintain a casual fit and feel.

Top down seamless knitting allows for easy modifications throughout the knitting process, and the detailed instructions make for an approachable and engaging knit. The drape and multi-seasonal comfort of linen are ideal for the design.
