Utmost Happiness sweater is worked seamlessly top-down. After a ribbing for neckband and set of short rows to raise the back of the sweater, a round yoke is decorated with an elaborate cable pattern achieved with mosaic knitting. After dividing for sleeves, circular knitting and a straight torso let you relax into the reversed stockinette stitch. Working the body inside out avoids purling and you can simply knit all the way to hem ribbing. Single-rib edge treatments contrast the mosaic cables in understated style. The sweater has a flattering, relaxed fit.
