FO: Dropped stitch yoke pullover

This is a pullover from my own improvised pattern. The yarn is Knit One Crochet Two Merino Gold. It contains little bits of metallic stuff that's hard to see in the photo. The contrast metallic yarn is Feza Iplik Night.
I wanted to try making a top-down raglan that has a yoke for the top section by doing the same number of increases but spread evenly. The increases are the standard 8 stitches every two rows. The yoke has 3 rows of double YOs which are dropped on the following row. For those rows, I did not do increases, but increased 16 stitches 2 rows later. I dub this pattern Cleopatra (Cleo for short) because of this neck piece. I'm very happy with the sweater and how the yoked turned out.
