  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This top-down sweater is knit seamlessly in the round with DK weight yarn. Choose one main color and three contrast color pops for this bold geometric design. Dip stitches form the gorgeous yoke stitch pattern. This technique is super fun and easy to knit, resulting in a mesmerizing geometric yoke motif. This dip stitch technique decorates the sleeve cuffs too. The main color flows from a twisted rib collar into garter stitch short rows to raise the back of the neck. The remaining body and sleeves of the sweater are knitted in broken ribbing. This cozy sweater is so much fun to knit and ideal for using single skeins and leftover bits of DK weight yarn. Follow the pattern exactly as written with three contrast color pops or add as many colors as you want for an extra special textured pullover.
