The on-trend silhouette of the Collomia pullover offers a dramatic canvas for a timeless stranded colorwork yoke. The woolen-spun texture of Shelter yarn softens the bold stripes and ornate snowflake motifs. With seams only at the underarms and knit at a worsted gauge, Collomia is just as alluring to knit as it is to wear.

Knit from the bottom up, the front and back of Collomia are cast on separately for the split hem, then joined knit circularly in one piece. The colorful yoke is worked in the round. Sleeves are first created with a provisional cast-on, then joined with the yoke; once the yoke is complete, the sleeves are worked circularly from the top down.

Please note: the stitch patterns for this garment are charted only.
