The yoke itself is not extreme, only the pattern stitch, because there are twists on every round. The lack of resting rows is easier, however, in the round, becasue you can always see what you are doing. Short rows are worked under the yoke, bringing the front neckline down. The elegant, lightweight yarn used to knit this pullover knits up faster than you might think and is a joy to wear.
