    NOTES

    This yoke is worked from the top-down with a positif ease of about 2-4²; 5-10 cm. You can adjust the length of the body and sleeves as needed, keeping in mind that you will also need to adjust the amount of yarn required to complete the sweater. The yoke has a plaid pattern worked in stranded colorwork.

    In addition to this pattern, you can read this article on BiscotteYarns.com about knitting stranded colorwork and this one about How to M1 (Make One) in Seamless Yokes. To make the yoke increases, knit the strand between the stitch you have just knit (located on the right needle) and the next stitch (on the left needle). This increase will create a small "hole" that will be decorative and will be an integral part of the colorwork pattern.
