Get Yoked - Designing a Top-Down Sweater with Knitting Fairy
Yoke Sweaters are all the rage. Learn how to create one of your very own alongside Alissa Barton, the Knitting Fairy. Start at the top and work your way down to the hem. All the design choices are yours! Lace? Ok. Colorwork, fine. Texture? You bet!

About the event
Sweaters knit in the round with a yoke collar are all over the internet. We will explore how to make one starting from the neck & working down, giving you the opportunity to customize the fit as you work which is a tremendous advantage when you are designing your own.
THREE PARTS -- Saturdays, March 12 & 26, plus April 9
10 am to 12n each day - please make sure you can commit to all 3 days before registering
$100 p/p for all 3 sessions
Limited to 6 participants
Alissa’s example (which we will go through step by step in class) features a lacy yoke worked in DK cotton with short sleeves … but if you do a little window-gazing on Ravelry you will find that yoke sweaters can be so much more! Colorwork, lace, cables, texture. Nothing is out of question once you understand the basic structure.
