Description ~ Get Yoked!

Yoke Sweaters are all the rage. Learn how to create one of your very own. Start at the top and work your way down to the hem. All the design choices are yours! Lace? Ok. Colorwork, fine. Texture? You bet! Design your own souvenir for a trip that you will never forget.


Sweaters knit in the round with a yoke collar are all over the internet. We will explore how to make one starting from the neck and working down. This gives you the opportunity to customize the fit as you work which is a tremendous advantage when you are designing your own. My example (which we will go through step by step in class) features a lacy yoke worked in DK cotton with short sleeves, but if you do a little window-gazing on Ravelry you will find that yoke sweaters can be so much more! Colorwork, lace, cables, texture. Nothing is out of question once you understand the basic structure.

Materials Needed ~ Get Yoked!

Needles and yarn to start your swatch. You will ultimately need a sweater quantity of the yarn you choose. Be aware that design will affect the quantity you need - BUY EXTRA! Bring a variety of needles and stitch markers to class with your yarn (just one ball, already wound).

Homework ~ Get Yoked!

Ahead of class you will want to consider what kind of yarn you would like to use. During class you can be knitting a swatch while taking notes in the morning. After lunch we will be applying what we have learned to creating a masterpiece!
