This is a slightly loose fit yoke sweater with a geometric pattern repeat, that’s perfect for showcasing a hand painted yarn.

Worked from the bottom up on circular needles. The Sleeves and body are worked in the round to the underarm and then joined to form the yoke.

If you are new to yoke knitting this is a great introduction to the technique. The pattern is a simple chevron that is quick to knit as it’s easy to memorize.
