The texture of the Melted Suri adds a romantic, vintage feel to this circular yoke pullover. Worked from the top down seamlessly, you can try Pink Velvet on as you go and adjust lengths to suit your personal style! (Just make sure if you are adding length, to purchase extra yarn to accommodate for the extra yardage needed.)

GAUGE
24 sts & 34 rows = 4”/10 cm on larger needles.
Measured over stockinette stitch in the round after blocking. Take care during the colourwork yoke - some knitters knit colourwork tighter and may need to go up a needle size for that portion of the sweater.
