Our Botanical Yoke Pullover is knitting gold: a jaw-dropper that is much simpler to make than it looks! Despite its complex beauty, this triumph of intertwining ribs is really nothing more than simple cables with some every-now-and-then decreases thrown into the mix.

But the effect is pretty magnificent! Climbing vines around the yoke ripple and weave, crisscross and diverge, like the walls of the Secret Garden itself. For a very soft and dreamy edge, we knit up the Botanical Yoke Pullover in our Cashmere Merino Bloom, a mix of 75% extra fine merino wool and 25% cashmere.
