Few years ago my husband walked into our LYS, Black Sheep Yarns in Port Moody, BC and asked for denim blue light warm non-superwash yarn( he knows me well!) which he got for my birthday and hence the idea of this colorwork yoke pullover was born.

This sweater combines classic Nordic motifs and construction with updated flattering shape. The yoke is both graphic and a bit subdued and there is no finishing or seams - once you bind off, you are done and done! The sweater is worked top down in the round so you can try it on as you work on it to ensure a good fit.
