This seamless-yoke pullover is worked in one piece from the neck down. And there's a twist: it's completely reversible. If you weave in the ends carefully - or splice them - you can wear the sweater with either side out. The reverse stockinette side shows a smocked texture on the yoke, while the stockinette side reveals an easy in-and-out pattern. The yarn is a warm llama/wool blend that split-splices wonderfully. Practice this age-old technique to ensure you have ends to weave only at the cast-on, bind-off, and underarms.
