Before washing…Helleborus Yoke weighs 546 grams, 1200+ yards of Patons Classic Wool
I can’t get over the fact that it’s already spring. I have to say I’m a little bitter to be bidding farewell in earnest to the winter days and snowy peaks, which I never seem to be able to take full advantage of. Did I really manage to miss another winter?
I’ve been trying to turn an eye towards spring crafts. Somehow this year, it’s harder than ever for me get excited about crafting layerable knitwear–maybe it’s because I have already made five between November and now. For me, this season will be all about writing patterns and learning more about knitting traditions of Scandinavia, Iceland, and the Shetland isles. That’s my wishful thinking, anyway.
Meet my new favorite top-down yoke sweater patterns. It’s so fast and simple, but looks great! I love that the cabled yoke vest is practically seamless to worry about.
After bath…will sew up buttons after it’s dried in the warm sun outside.
I’m still surprised that I pulled this one off in three days and didn’t crash and burn into a big mess. Any suggestion on sleeves…short, 3/4, or full length?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
