A few days ago I received a fab pick-me-up after a long workday: happy mail was waiting at home. I received my copy of The Art of Circular Yokes and I'm still over the moon that one of my designs made it into this awesome collection curated by Kerry Bogert!
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. The cardigan is worked completely without any seams.
I admit I am really proud of myself for this design and to see it beautifully photographed by Harper Point Photography in this fab Interweave book makes me do a happy dance!
The Art of Circular Yokes is available from book stores and also - as ebook or in print - from the Interweave website, here.
