Notes: Ixchel is a top down colorwork yoke sweater knit in the round. Unlike most yoke sweaters, this one has center front and back panels 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. Make sure to weave in ends as you go so you are not left with a a big weaving job when you finish. Above everything, please take your time. This is a practice in slow knitting. Mistakes are barely noticeable in a sweater like this but can also be fixed with duplicate stitch. Enjoy!
