Strandhill Sweater is knit seamlessly top down in a round. It has a relaxed boxy fit. The project starts at the ribbed neckline then short rows are added at the back for a better fit. The colour yoke is worked following the chart. The sleeves and body are separated and knit down to your preferred length. Only two colours are used at any time making it a great beginner project. Each section of the yoke could be knit in a different colour, perfect for using up your leftover yarn!
