Notes: Ixchel is a top down yoked colourwork sweater knit in the round. In order to achieve an even fabric, twist the non-working colour at the WS of the work every 2-3 sts. Unlike most yoke sweaters, this one has a centre and back panel that remain untouched by increases. Markers are placed around these panels to remind you and for help with achieving symmetry. Each side of the sweater between front and back panels mirrors the other.
