Rays of sunshine encircle the yoke of this delightfully simple to knit tee.

Designer: Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark
Finished Size: 45 1/4 (49 1/4, 54, 59 1/2, 65 3/4)" bust circumference. Sweater shown measures 45 1/4".
Yarn: Rowan Lenpur Linen (75% Vilenpur viscose, 25% linen; 126 yd [115 m]/50 g): #561 saffron, 7 (7, 9, 10, 11) balls. Yarn distributed by Westminster Fibers.
Needles: Ribbing and yoke-size 4 (3.5 mm): 24" circular (cir) and set of double-pointed needles (dpn). Body-size 6 (4 mm): 24" cir. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions: Markers (m); cable needle (cn); stitch holders; tapestry needle.
Gauge: 18 sts and 24 rnds = 4" in St st on larger needle; 22 sts and 32 rnds = 4" in yoke patt st on smaller needle.

A NOTE ON SIZING FOR THIS PATTERN:
The finished sizes for this pattern seem large at first glance. Though these measurements represent the circumference at the hem of the sweater and throughout the body, the smaller gauge and traveling stitches at the yoke force the fabric at the underarm to gather into a functionally smaller circumference, creating a slight A-line shape.
When choosing a size to make for this pattern, consider that the functional circumference at the underarm will be approximately 37" (41", 46", 51", 58") for the sizes given, and choose a size that will give you a few inches of positive ease.

I have been knitting the yoke of this sweater and find that bunching occurs between the traveling stitches once I start increasing. Anyone have a similar problem/solution?
