Rain or Shine is knit in the round from the bottom up. Short rows are worked in the body to keep the back from riding up, in the yoke to lower the neckline, and at the neckline to shape the shoulders. The pattern includes a schematic to aid in customizing lengths, and all measurements are given in US and metric. Two charts for the colorwork motif are included. One with a light-toned background and one with a dark-toned background. Choose the chart the best represents your color choices.
