PATTERN DETAILS

Another perfect piece for spring, the Yukiya Pullover features round yoke construction, elbow-length sleeves, and princess seams, which combine to give it a feminine feel. Worked in three colors, it showcases bands of alternating color and texture. The patterning is achieved by slipping stitches rather than stranding (as in fair isle), making the sweater a great project for people working their way up to stranded color knitting. The stitch patterns have short repeats and are easy to memorize, and with no long floats, tensioning is not an issue. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error.
