Instructions:
This sweater is worked from the Top down, the collar is added later. You can make your sweater any length you choose. I like mine to go just past my hips, but you can make yours shorter or longer. But do keep in mind when making it longer you will also need to have more yarn handy.
Neck and Shoulders (Yoke)
With your 6mm hook and Main color (white) yarn make a slip knot, ch 72 (80, 80, 88, 88, 96, 96) , sl st with the first chain, making sure not to twist your ch.
Round 1: ch3 (counts as first dc), dc in each ch around, sl st with the top of the ch3. 72 (80, 80, 88, 88, 96, 96) dc

For Round 5 you will be adding your Color B yarn (Red) when you make a popcorn st. I chose to make my popcorn then fasten off the red instead of carrying it through the round. Working with a lighter color for the body and a darker color for the Popcorn st, made the darker yarn visible through the round. But you do what is best for you.

Round 5: ch1, *hdc in next 6 st, joining with your Color B yarn make a popcorn st in the next st ( Use this link if you need help transitioning colors https://youtu.be/K1zlwsJshnc?t=767) working with Main Color, hdc in next 4 st, 2hdc in next* repeat from *to* around, sl st with the first hdc you made.
