McCoy - by Veronik Avery Description

Make your graphic colorwork dreams come true with the McCoy pullover. Worked in the round from the bottom up, and incorporating both raglan and round-yoke shaping, McCoy features a running zig-zag and triangle motif that dashes around the wearer’s shoulders. Charts are included for both a two- and four-color version, inviting your inner color theorist to venture out and into the world of design possibility — which of Arbor yarn’s prismatic hues will you include in your McCoy?

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this garment are charted only.
