Top-Down Circular Yoke Pullover Pattern

Description

The beauty of our delightfully soft Top-Down Circular Yoke Pullover is in the simply executed details: its delicate neckline, subtle yoke, and easy rolled edge cuffs and hem. Knit as simply as possible in the round, with some basic short row shaping at the back of the neck, the Top-Down Circular Yoke Cardigan Pattern is an excellent place to start for new sweater knitters, while long-time knitters will find satisfaction in this pullover’s classic engineering. This Pattern works with two of our very favorite yarns: Flax Down and Cashmere Merino Bloom. Worked at the same gauge with the same size needles, choose either one!
