Petiole is a top-down circular yoke sweater, featuring Estonian lace stitches and nupps in the striking yoke. The yoke seamlessly transitions into the stockinette stitch body, which is gently shaped at the waist and hip before ending with a 2x2 ribbing at the hem. The sweater is designed for quite a bit of positive ease, resulting in a relaxed and thoroughly modern fit.
