Well, unless I decide to undo the bindoff at the neck to decrease a few stitches and make the neckline a wee bit smaller.
I made the smallest size, knowing there would still be some positive ease. But I wanted something that was sort of loose and cozy. If I make another one (especially if I make a short-sleeved version for summer), I’ll work one less pattern repeat in the yoke.
Pattern: Phyllo Yoked Pullover, by Norah Gaughan
Yarn: RYC Cashcotton, in Geranium, 8 skeins
Needles: US 6/4mm
Modifications: Pretty much everything besides the yoke. I started with a provisional cast-on and worked the yoke as per the pattern. Then I picked up the stitches for the body and worked it down in the round, making it smaller, longer, and doing some waist shaping. For the sleeves, I picked up the stitches and knit the sleeves down from the top, making plain tapered sleeves rather than bell sleeves. All hems were finished with two rounds of reverse stockinette, then 6 rounds of stockinette, and bound off loosely. The ending stockinette rolls up to the reverse stockinette, looking a bit like two garter stitch ridges.

The angora content in the yarn makes it nice and soft, though the downside of that is the fuzz that manages to find its way under my contact lenses. The fabric also tends to crease. But it’s nice and cozy and I love it anyway.
