This pullover is named for Tenshō Shūbun, a Sumi Ink artist dating from the 14th century.

The sweater is knit from the bottom up in the round, and the body and sleeves joined at the underarm. A few raglan-style decreases are made before beginning the circular yoke color work, which incorporates more decreases. Short rows are worked just before the colorwork for a better fit around the neckline. The sleeves can be knitted using the magic loop method, or using dpn. If desired, you can work the ribbing on a smaller needle size. Some knitters might choose to work the ribbing on a size smaller needle, which can give a tighter rib.
