Smockulus Majoris (EZ Yoke Sweater)

It doesn't look it at first glance, but somewhere buried deep in this design is a yoke sweater using EPS, and the yoke decrease rate EZ recommends for children. I used Malabrigo on US #7 needles, casting on K + 30% for the full skirt, then decreasing by 30% right before the mock cable ribbing section at the raised waist.

For the sleeves I followed EZ's advice of making the cuff ribbing longer by half than feels necessary, and increased all at once to 70 stitches.
