Yoke Cardigan

The knitting of this Jo Sharp’s Yoke Cardigan was inspired by, first, the need for a cardigan and secondly, a heavily discounted online sales of her Classic DK wool and Rare Comfort Kid Mohair. The colour combination is perhaps not ideal (as colours were slightly limited due to the sales) but overall satisfactory. Using 9.0mm, the garment is relatively quick to knit. The pattern is very simple and cunning. The wool combination makes the cardigan very warm and together with the loose knit design, the garment is very light to carry.  A highly recommended project.

In the original design, the finished garment is worn with a spike, which makes the location of the fastening flexible – a very good idea. (As I don’t have a spike, I am just using a stitch holder here.) Closing the top makes the cardigan very warm. My only regret is that I wished I completed this project earlier as the weather is beginning to warm up!
