The design of this cardigan sidesteps sagging yoke issues by knitting it with separate fronts, back, and sleeves and then picking up stitches all around for the circular yoke. Shaped darts at the front and back edges compensate for the circular shape of the yoke, creating a true-to-life fit with minimal finishing.
