So thrilled to see that now the newest Interweave knitting book The Art of Circular Yokes can be pre-ordered. Why, you ask? Well, as I've told quite often, what I love to knit and design best is usually smaller things like socks, mittens, shawls, and only occasionally I tackle garments. So I am absolutely proud that one of my designs, the Scallops Cardigan, made it into this fantastic garment collection.
The Scallops Cardigan is knitted from the top down with a cabled yoke. The cables start small and get wider with each yoke increase. This shows how you can shape a yoke simply by shaping each cable or element in it. One of the cables from the yoke is continued onto each sleeve as an eye-catching extra; on the sleeve the cable gets gradually narrower before it 'vanishes' completely.
All edgings (bottom edge, buttonband, cuffs) are cabled too; buttonholes are worked into the cable. The cardigan is worked completely without any seams.
The pattern includes six sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL) with a bust circumference: about 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50)“ (76 86.5, 96.5, 106.5, 117, 127 cm).
I really love how the cardi turned out and the chosen setting for the pictures in a museum is so appropriate. :)
The book - ebook or print - is available from the Interweave website, here.
