The Hexworthy Jumper is a stranded colourwork yoke jumper, with motifs inspired by the rolling hills, jagged tors, granite crosses and standing stones of Dartmoor. It is knitted in the round seamlessly from the top down. Short rows are used to shape the back neck. Charts are provided to work the yoke pattern in two different variations, using either four contrast colours or just one. Note that the four-colour version includes some rows with three colours.
