Cherry Pie is a long-sleeved, colorwork-yoked sweater with a zippered front. This pattern is designed to be comfortable and interesting to knit, with shaping happening both on the front and back of the sweater. Twisted rib edgings create textural interest, as well as the radiating decreases across the yoke.

A note on zippers: it is best for you to purchase your zipper after you have completed and blocked your Cherry Pie. Measure the length of your sweater from the bottom edge opening along the edge to the collar and purchase a zipper that is the closest to the length you have.
