Here is a colourwork yoke sweater worked from the top down with a hem highlighted by a mosaic stitch band. The sleeves of this model have been designed longer so that the ribs can be folded over the wrist. Feel free to change this detail by knitting the sleeves shorter and make it your own.
This yoke knits from top to bottom with an ease of about 2-4 in; 5-10 cm. 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. Another beautiful pattern by Louise Robert Design.
