Kitra means “crowned one,” and the beautiful name reflects the crown of cables entwined with the yoke of this design. Kitra evokes Medieval Kingdoms and the rhythms of the woods in which the royalty hunted. It was designed with Shibui Dune, a mix of baby camel and silk forming a deeply hued yarn that knits into a rich fabric without losing its natural roots. This sweater is royal enough for your special affairs and natural enough for daily use.

I will be running a KAL with Kitra! If you are interested post here.

Needles: Size 5/3.75mm 16 & 24” (or longer) circular needle and set of 4 or 5 double-pointed needles.
Other: Stitch markers, cable needle, waste yarn, tapestry needle.
Gauge: 20 sts and 26 rnds = 4” in Stockinette Stitch with 1 strand of each yarn held together. 28-st Yoke Chart = 3.75” wide. 30-st Large Yoke Chart = 4” wide.

Notes:
This rounded yoke pullover is constructed from the top down in one piece with raglan increases to shape the bodice. This pullover is designed with negative ease in the bust. If you desire a looser fit work one size bigger. There is no body shaping past the armholes until the bottom cable band where hip room is added. The length of the body is easily adjusted.
Neck Circumference:If you desire a smaller neckline CO with a needle 1 or 2 sizes smaller, work the first rnd of Yoke Chart then switch to the size needed for gauge of the pattern. Going down 1 needle size should give a neck circumference of about 18.25” and if you go down 2 sizes if should be about 17.25”.
Hold 1 strand of each yarn together throughout pattern.
This cable pattern can seem complicated at first, but if you think of it as moving around purls stitches it becomes more clear.
