An oversized, comfy fit and a combination of raglan and
circular yoke shaping make this pullover a perfect blank
canvas for simple but graphic stranded colorwork.

The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up. Body and sleeves are joined and the yoke is worked in the round. Short rows are worked before and after the stranded colorwork portion in order to raise the yoke in back.
