Wega
The Wega Pullover applies unique colorwork with a modern shape.

Pattern notes
The pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down. You start with a 1x1 rib (optional with herringbone rib like sample). Short rows are worked to create a scoop neck. The yoke is knitted top down with a pattern in stranded colorwork. After sleeve separation the sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the body is worked in rounds to the hem. Short rows are worked to shape the rounded hem. Sleeves are worked top down to the cuff.
