Delicate details of overlapping seed stitch edging create a graceful look to this bottom up, colorwork yoked sweater. This same motif is continued to the keyhole opening at the back neck, which allows for the colorwork to be created through intarsia. Shaping lines radiate from the waist, creating textural interest and making for a fun knit that will keep you on your toes.
