The Cayley Pullover is the ideal piece to take you from weekday to weekend, from road trip to backyard. This casual crewneck pullover strikes a balance between cables and stockinette, and its unusual construction makes for an intriguing journey for all experience levels. Knit in a cotton/wool blend, the garment is a three-season wardrobe staple—perfect for cool summer evenings but robust enough for chillier temperatures.

The front and back yokes are knit flat side-to-side from the right armhole to the left. The yokes are cast on and worked simultaneously until the neck hole; the yokes are worked separately in order to shape the neck, and then are worked together again once the neck shaping is completed. Stitches for the upper body are then picked up from the yokes’ lower edges and are worked back and forth with armhole shaping. The lower body is then worked in the round from the top down. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armholes, the cap is shaped with short rows, and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
