A blaze of fall color about the shoulders makes this cheerful Loft pullover a pleasure to knit and wear. Worked circularly from the bottom up with gentle waist shaping, Voe offers plenty of mellow stockinette before the fireworks of the yoke. An innovative stranding approach creates tiny dashes of woven color amid the motifs. The hem and cuffs are distinguished by a contrast-color cast-on and garter double rib, with the yoke design echoed on the sleeves. The slim, tailored fit and wide, shallow neckline give Voe a vintage, feminine feel.


The body and sleeves are worked circularly from the bottom up and joined at the underarms, then the yoke is worked in the round. Short Rows: Sunday Method are used to shape the upper back and the back neck.

27 stitches & 40 rounds = 4” in single-color stockinette stitch with Size A needle, after blocking
27 stitches & 35 rounds = 4” in charted colorwork with Size B needle, after blocking

Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge.


Size A (for Single-Color Stockinette Stitch and Garter Rib)
One each 16”, 24” and 32” circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 3¼ mm (US 3)

Size B (for Charted Colorwork)
One 32” circular needle and one set of DPNs, one size larger than Size A
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

Due to significant variance between knitters, your colorwork fabric should be swatched prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether or not Size B should be larger, smaller or equal to Size A. Please read about Speed Swatching for Circular Knitting (see Special Techniques).

32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g., Sleeves).
