I knew after I finished The Throwback that I needed a pullover version as well. A classic sweater, perfect over t-shirts and sandy jeans on cool summer evenings, or pulled over woolen undershirts for a winter hike.

DETAILS
This sweater is knit from the top down with a deep collar, that transitions into a colorwork round yoke. The sleeves are separated and put on hold while the body is finished. They are then returned to the needles and knit down for a customizable and seamless sweater!
