PASTEL BLUE is a circular yoke tee in DK weight yarn, combining knit and purl stitches with a lace pattern. It is worked seamlessly from the top down and additional raglan increases before body and sleeves were separated. There are no brioche stitches to be knit, although it reminds of a brioche pattern, pattern is based simply on rib stitches.

Above all the yoke pattern is fully reversible, so it is up to you, wearing it inside out or facing stockinette stitches. The PASTEL BLUE pullover is worked up quickly and the pattern is easy to memorize.
Use neutral colors, tonal or solid. The pattern is so addictive, I could not resist to knit a second sweater in one go!
