Juxtaposition is worked top-down seamlessly. The sweater has a round yoke and an all-over colorwork pattern. The sweater has long sleeves and no waist shaping. The hem is cropped. Because of the colorwork there’s no bust dart but you can easily lengthen the body of the sweater. You can use a separate MC and CC but the look of the sample was achieved using a gradient, starting MC from the light end and CC from the dark end.
