Serena Sweater has a round yoke in brioche stitch that creates a pretty and feather light look in silk mohair. As brioche stitch widens when worn, you only work increases right past the neckline and once the yoke is finished. Thereafter, body and sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch. All hems (neckline and sleeves) in stockinette stitch are folded to the wrong side. The bottom hem is worked in regular rib for a flexible edge. Serena Sweater is worked top down.
