A new kind of seamless yoke for a pullover. After binding off midway through the chest and at the top of the sleeves, use long I-cord loops to attach the bodice and sleeves to an I-cord neckband to create a spoke yoke. The sweater, worked in a handpainted yarn, uses a two-by-two rib for a close fit that doesn't cling.
