  • The body and sleeves of this pullover are worked in the round from the bottom up to the yoke, then the pieces are joined for working the circular yoke.
  • The Colorwork chart is worked using the stranded method. Always pick up the background color over the pattern color and pick up the pattern color from under the background color; this will prevent tangling. Keep floats loose.
  • When shaping yoke, if a marker falls in the center of a decrease, remove the marker and replace it after the decrease.
