Gauge
28 sts and 36 rounds to 10cm / 4in over colourwork pattern and stockinette in the round using gauge-size needle. If your gauge tends to tighten when working small circumferences or colourwork, you may need to go up a needle size for sleeves and yoke. Use 3.25mm needle as a starting point for swatching.

Pattern notes
This cap-sleeved, circular yoke pullover is knitted from the bottom up, all in one piece. The body is made first, followed by the sleeve caps, before joining together and working the colourwork yoke from a chart.
