This worsted weight pullover is knit from the top down, seamlessly in the round. The yoke is shaped with evenly spaced radial increases during the coloured stripes, and then with raglan increases in the main colour. Short rows are worked below the stripes to raise the back neckline relative to the front.

You start with a provisional cast on to begin the yoke. The collar is worked at the end by picking up the provisionally cast on sts. This allows the collar to be easily adjusted if desired (e.g. made looser or tighter, or worked longer or shorter).

(The pattern contains links to tutorials for working short rows and for working a provisional cast on.)

Intended to fit with approximately 5-17 cm (2-5 inches) of positive ease around the chest. Sample shown in size S with about 12 cm (5 inches) of positive ease. The body length is slightly cropped but can easily be modified as the sweater is knit top down.

You can use any worsted weight yarn that gives you the pattern gauge, in any colours you wish. The sample uses De Rerum Natura Gilliatt for the main colour (’sel’), CC1 (’caramel’), and CC4 (’quartz’), and Brooklyn Tweed Shelter for CC2 (’iceberg’), and Cascade 220 for CC3 (’mustard’).
