As part of the 3IG Sweater KAL, I will be sharing a series of posts about various things related to knitting sweaters. Today’s topic is the Seamless Yoke Sweater, and Rilana has been kind enough to write a wonderful post all about this basic yet versatile construction method.
You can find her post here. I highly recommend you check it out – it’s full of good information!
My first introduction to Three Irish Girls’s yarn was through the Yarn of the Month club (now available in two new incarnations – Stash Menagerie and Sock Yarnista). One of my first shipments in this club was a beautiful, soft single ply yarn (Galenas Merino) in a cool and soothing colorway (Curran).
As soon as I saw it, I had visions of a gorgeous yoke sweater in a deep blue with Curran snowflakes across the yoke. I went so far as to sketch out my design, determine what color blue would work for the background and figure out how much yarn I would need. Unfortunately, I never progresssed past the planning stage, but that sweater still sticks in my mind. Maybe some day I will get around to making it.
(If you were wondering, my skein of Curran turned into a drop stitch scarf. It’s just as soft and lovely as I expected:
See? Even the cat approves.)
