This design is my contribution to LITLG magazine Issue 05 Liminal Threads.
The pullover is worked top-down in the round with a colourwork pattern around the yoke. Starting from the tubular cast-on and simple 1x1 ribbing, the yoke is worked with a textured pattern in CC that transitions into the colourwork. The stranded colourwork pattern of the yoke is worked with the floats brought to the RS and CC yarn held double.

Sizes:

The pattern is written for nine sizes 1 [2, 3, 4, 5] [6, 7, 8, 9] to fit 74 [84, 94, 104, 114] [124, 134, 144, 154] cm // 29 [33, 37, 41, 45] [49, 53, 57, 61] in bust circumference with ca. 20-23 cm (8-9 in) of positive ease and a finished bust circumference of ca. 96 [107, 116, 124, 136] [144, 156, 164, 176] cm // 37.5 [42, 45.5, 49, 53.25] [56.75, 61.25, 64.75, 69] in.
