Silverlining is worked from the top down, seamlessly and in the round. Simple geometric shapes on the yoke create a mirror image and the motif sequences are rhythmic and meditative as you work. With top down construction, an easy yoke chart requiring just 2 colors per row, and with worsted or DK weight yarn that knits up quickly, I consider this to be one of my easiest yoke sweater patterns that’s both approachable for colorwork beginners and fun for the experienced.
