Choose two colors of DK weight yarn to knit this top-down seamless sweater. The textured bubbles in the yoke are worked by knitting into the stitch from four or six rows below. You only knit with one color at a time, so the bubble technique is deceptively simple and playful. Twisted ribbing frames the neckline and cuffs for crisp edges. Enjoy this easy and stylish yoked sweater!
