This yoke knits from top to bottom with an ease of about 2-4 in; 5-10 cm and ¾ length sleeves. You can adjust the length of the body and sleeves while keeping in mind to also adjust the amount of yarn required to make the sweater. The hem of the sweater and the cuffs are knit in faux cable ribbing. Visit our blog at BiscotteYarns.com for a tutorial about Fairisle colorwork knitting and another on yoke increases. To make the yoke increases: knit the strand between the stitch you have just knit (located on the right side) and the next stitch (on the left side). This increase will create a small "hole" that will be decorative and will be an integral part of the fairisle pattern.

I’m looking through my stash for wool now. I’m thinking gray with the color work in Apple green and hot pink so far. Looks like a fun knit!
