Round Yokes from the Top Down
Knitbot Yoked is a collection of four modern round-yoke sweater patterns and two accessories. Hannah Fettig provides valuable tips and techniques for knitting round-yokes from the top down. This book also serves as an introduction to Fair Isle knitting.
This collection is a little different for me, a departure as Pam has been saying. There is no cascading fabric here, no waterfall cardigans. Instead there are round yoked sweaters, all worked from the top down. You will still find clean lines, simple finishes, and yokes that do have a grace of their own.
My grandmother always knitted us kids round yoked sweaters, all growing up. Last year she knit one for my son, her great-grandson. I was very moved by that gift. It planted a seed that led to this collection of sweaters.
There is a simple one color unisex pullover, the rest of the designs feature colorwork. If you've never tried fair isle knitting I hope this book can serve as an introduction to this technique. It isn't scary, I promise, in fact it's really fun! The book contains tips and techniques, and over the course of this week I'll be uploading new tutorial videos so you cast on one of these projects with confidence.
