Top down knitting patterns for 12 seamless yoke sweaters! Classic yoke sweaters never go out of style, this collection features 12 different patterns which will have you reaching for your needles.
Yoke sweaters are practical and beautiful — a colorwork yoke can take a simple knit sweater to another level by introducing a decorative element at the neckline. Knitting pattern designer and author, Olga Putano, has designed three basic sweaters patterns for different yarn weights: DK, fingering/sock, and worsted/aran.
The yoke designs feature stunning yet simple colorwork that looks intricate but uses just two colors making them suitable for beginner to intermediate knitters but exciting enough to appeal to experienced knitters. The textured yoke designs are a subtle way to add interest around the neckline with simple cabling techniques. Fit is important when it comes to sweater knitting and all of the patterns have been graded to a wide range of sizes, up to a size 68" chest.
