Named after the juicy citrus fruit, Iyokan is a vibrant autumnal pullover you will reach for again and again. The body of this sweater features textured, twisted stitch panels along the sides and a beautiful twisting motif across the center of the front and back. The sleeves are worked in simple reverse stockinette. Fun twisted-stitch details decorate the sleeve cuffs and neck edging.

Iyokan is knit using Wool Pop – a round, smooth, and plump blend of bamboo, wool, and nylon, This DK-weight yarn boasts a subtle sheen with a heathered appearance to the way wool and bamboo take dye differently. It perfectly complements the twisted stitches used in this bright, sunny sweater.

The front and back are separated at the underarms and worked flat. The shoulders are joined using the three-needle bind-off.

Stitches for the neckband are worked in the round, then folded toward the inside of the work to create a professional finish.
