Introduction
Yabel is a rounded / circular yoke pullover with, what I like to call, a “petite boxy” shape, where the body has a certain amount of positive ease (not as much as a traditional boxy top). I must say that this “petite boxy” is one of my very favorite styles because it dresses beautifully in any body type! The stranded colorwork stitch motif at yoke and sleeves is rich in textures because of the yarn fibers variety: fingering single ply, sock weightwith sterlina and mohair! For a contemporary look, the sleeves are shaped to create a bishop / balloon style. The back neck is shaped with short rows, for a great fit.
