This cozy pullover features two strands of yarn held together throughout the entire fabric. The sweater is constructed top-down beginning with a large ribbed cowl. The yoke is a blend of circular yoke shaping for the front and back with ribbed raglan sleeve shaping. You can marl your colors any way you like. The blue sample features one color of suri alpaca throughout the entire sweater with color-blocked stripes using different fingering weight wool colorways. The large cowl neck is optional. If you prefer a regular ribbed collar, there are instructions that skip the large cowl feature.
The knitting is very simple so you can enjoy using this pattern as a canvas for experimenting with color.
