I’ve been flipping through old knitting books looking for inspiration about round yokes, and stumbled upon this gem in Knitting Without Tears:

“Norwegian color pattern knitting and the making of Scottish Argylls have a watery waste between them as deep and wide as the North Sea or German Ocean.”

Last night at about 1:30 a.m. I finished a pair of crocheted socks just under the wire for an upcoming summer magazine release. My hands were tired and so was I, and I thought, I’ll give myself a couple of days break before jumping back into my other deadlines. But for some reason, today, I woke up itching to start another project. It must be that time of year, I have a bit of startitis. Luckily, I have a lot of projects waiting in the wings as well as some great contract knitters and crocheters helping me out.

The next sweater that I’m creating–a crocheted cropped jacket for Lana Knits–has been brewing for some time. I’ve designed it in my head several times, swatched a bit and finally come up with a plan, in theory that I like. Now it’s time to dig out hook and yarn again and give it a try. I’d like it to have a round yoke and I want to try and work out. Time to experiment!

Have you ever crocheted a round yoke sweater? I’d love to hear about it.

    Well, not really a sweater but a baby cardigan. The easiest ever. The pattern is the Cecily one from Alicia Paulson.

    I am going to start now with the adult version from the Vintage Crochet book.

    It’s autumn here in Australia and I’ve been desperately trying to find a nice pattern for a cropped crocheted jacket. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Ooo…I’ve also been looking for round yoke cardis. Milobo (on ravelry) has one (crocheted). Also on ravelry is a beautiful knitted one called the “Shalom Cardigan.” I’ll bet they would inspire you!!!
