Colorful birds and leaves zig and zag across the stranded yoke, and bas-relief birds are scattered across the body of this loose-fitting pullover. Slender sleeves are worked in a staggered rib pattern and are finished with stranded leaves at the wrists.

Construction: Seamless pullover is knit in the round from the top down. Short rows shape the neckline. Underarms use provisional cast-on. I-cord forms a neat trim around the neckline.
