A curly wave motif serves as the transition from one color to the next around the yoke on this colorful pullover. First knit the body in the round, knit the two sleeves as smaller tubes, join them all together, work only six rounds of two colors at a time, then quickly finish up to the neck. Besides being a fun project, this is a great introduction to stranded colorwork for those who are new to this versatile technique.
