Notes

This sweater is worked from the top down. The yoke it is knit back and forth, then joined and worked in the round down to the hem.

When working the M1Ls and M1Rs in the yoke, I find that things look more smooth if the color of the float picked up is also the color you’re going to be knitting.

There is a wee bit of intarsia to get the MC garter stitch border on each side of the yoke. Remember to twist yarns when switching colors.
