This seamless top-down pullover features an intricate yoke, inspired by Celtic knot- work designs; the colour contrast is achieved with a combination of stranded knitting and cabling.

Skill Level

Advanced. The yoke pattern uses a combination of cable knitting and stranded knitting, and it can be challenging to obtain an even tension - you may wish to make a swatch of the cable pattern and check it against the repeat measurements listed in the pattern, to ensure that you’re knitting loosely enough and not stranding the yarn too tightly across the back. It may be necessary to go up a needle size or two to get the correct tension in the cable yoke.

Sizing information
