    Inspired by my Wixom Hat, this stranded yoke sweater is surprisingly quick to knit. The two color geometric motif is an eye-catching design that works well as a unisex sweater. Knit top-down, this seamless, worsted weight sweater is sure to become a sweater weather staple!

    NOTES:
    • In order to maintain gauge in stranded knitting, it’s important to use the appropriate length circular needles. Should stitches be too close together, floats may not be long enough and could tighten yoke gauge.
    • Piece is knit in the round from the top down.
    • Short-row shaping is used before the Yoke Increases to raise the back of neck.
    • Sleeves are placed on waste yarn while the Body is worked in the round to the bottom edge, then Sleeves are worked in the round to the Cuff.
    • For short rows, sample shown uses the method for Japanese Short Rows in the round.
    • Stranded colorwork knitting often tightens one’s gauge; therefore, consider going down a needle size after working the chart. Sample shown used that technique.
