This colorful sweater is knit seamlessly in the round while always holding two strands of yarn together for a marled effect. The yoke is shaped with expanding ribbed columns. The body and sleeves are knit inside out so that you see the bumpy reverse stockinette stitch fabric on the outside. Hold your leftover bits of fingering weight yarn together to paint a colorfully speckled landscape. Finish the edges with 2x2 ribbing and optional thumbholes.
