Bands of simple colorwork wrap around the yoke of My Fletching. The repeats are easily memorized, and the floats are short. My Fletching would be perfect for a new colorwork knitter or a wonderfully relaxing knit for a more experienced colorwork knitter. My Fletching is knit seamlessly top-down in the round. Short rows are worked under the colorwork to lift the back neck for an excellent fit.
