Presque Isle is a bottom up colorful yoke sweater that is knit seamlessly in one piece. The delicate snowflake pattern can be worked in an array of your favorite colors.
The pullover is worked in the round from the bottom up. After the sleeves and body are complete, the pieces are joined to work the yoke. Raglan decreases shape the yoke, then short rows are worked to raise the back neck. Stranded colorwork with integrated decreases is knit from a chart, and then a ribbed crewneck completes the sweater.
