Inspired by the traditional Tree Of Life embroidery motifs, this round yoke pullover tells a story of its own, from roots to shoots. Poetic, isn’t it? 

The pullover is knit top-down in the round with a delicate floral colourwork pattern running down the yoke (shoots) and corrugated ribbing accents on the hem and cuffs (roots). 

The pattern calls for one strand of Nutiden yarn held together with a strand of silk-mohair lace, yet any other yarn(s) with the matching gauge would work wonderfully. The colourwork pattern of the yoke is charted in three different length options depending on the size to avoid a “collar” effect in the larger sizes.
You can take a closer look at my sample and discover the design process in this podcast episode.
