Ranunculus is a top-down round yoke pullover with lace and textured stitches.
You have so many choices with this pattern - structured, or light and wispy; wide neckline or tight; long balloon sleeves or short.
Midori Hirose designed this yoke pattern to look like wearing layers of necklaces. Short rows between the neck ribbing and yoke help with shaping, so that the neckline has a boat neck contour. The round yoke has ample depth and finished pullover has cropped length so that you can lay it over dresses or high-waisted skirts and pants. If crops aren’t your style, you can easily adjust to your favorite length, just make sure to have enough yarn.
You can choose from smaller or wider neckline, and short sleeves or long puff sleeves with or without diagonal cuff line.
You can use lace, light fingering to worsted weight yarn. The degree of transparency depends on the weight of yarn. Knitting with thin yarn on big needle gives light, transparent and airy texture to this pullover. Using thicker yarn or holding two yarns together adds more weight, and more structured look.
