Gauge 
22 sts/28 rows = 4” in St st worked in rows.

Notes 
The yoke increases are atypical and fully written out to avoid confusion however, the yoke is created using simple yarn over increases evenly spaced every RS row and once the pattern is established, it’s very easy to follow. 
Change from DPNs to 16” Cir as needed when knitting sleeves. 
Pockets are knit in rnds so that they are formed on the RS of the sweater. After grafting the bottom closed, simply tuck the pocket into the sweater.
