The Mount Lorne Pullover is a feminine take on unisex circular yoke sweaters featuring a bold, captivating graphic motif in two colors. This seamlessly constructed sweater is worked from the bottom up in one piece; the yoke has minimal shaping inside the chart but is followed by a dramatic decrease for a relaxed fit through the shoulders. Waist shaping and a wide neckline shaped with short-rows add feminine touches.
