The Marzipan pullover is knitted seamlessly top-down starting at the neckband. The yoke is knitted in a twisting cable pattern that flows into a 2x2 ribbing for the body and the sleeves. The sleeves and body are separated at the end of the circular yoke and knitted separately. The back is shaped with optional short-rows to improve the fit.
