Designed to dramatically contrast two hand-spun gradient yarns with its boldly-patterned yoke, this pullover also works up well in contrasting solid colours. It would look great in neutral tones, too.
It is a pullover in the true sense, designed to be worn with a lighter shirt underneath but still provide woolly warmth around the shoulders and body.
Instructions are included in the pattern to raise the neckline, if desired, and to knit it as a unisex pullover, without the included waist shaping instructions, as well as with longer sleeves.
