Notes
All color work stitches in the charts are worked in stockinette stitch, (knit on the RS and purl on the WS). This top is knit from the bottom up, beginning with each hem knit flat, then joined in the round. Texture and color work are worked in the round until the sweater is separated at the underarms. From here, the front and back are worked flat, separately. Short rows are worked to shape the shoulders, and stitches are bound off for the front and back necks to be picked up and finished with a simple rolled collar. Sleeve stitches are picked up and finished with a short ribbed cuff.
