The Contrast Sweater is worked top-down seamlessly. The neck ribbing is folded over and seamed on the inside at the end - this is the only finishing required in addition to weaving in the ends. Short rows are used to shape the neck opening. The yoke is worked in three steps with three different increase techniques. The sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles or using the magic loop technique.
The Contrast Sweater has a color change 2/3 down the sweater.
