Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

It's here: Knitbot Yoked

Here it is!  Knitbot Yoked.  This collection is a little different for me, a departure as Pam has been saying.  There is no cascading fabric here, no waterfall cardigans.  Instead there are round yoked sweaters, all worked from the top down.  You will still find clean lines, simple finishes, and yokes that do have a grace of their own.

My grandmother always knitted us kids round yoked sweaters, all growing up.  Last year she knit one for my son, her great-grandson.  I was very moved by that gift. It planted a seed that led to this collection of sweaters. 

There is a simple one color unisex pullover, the rest of the designs feature colorwork.  If you've never tried fair isle knitting I hope this book can serve as an introduction to this technique.  It isn't scary, I promise, in fact it's really fun!  The book contains tips and techniques, and over the course of this week I'll be uploading new tutorial videos so you cast on one of these projects with confidence.   

So what's inside?

 Let's take a look.  

Knitbot Yoked is available in print, as an e-book and as individual pattern PDF's. 

All patterns feature Quince & Co. Owl (50% American wool, 50% American alpaca; 120yd [110m] / 50g) .  Yardage requirements are also spelled out for each pattern, making substitution a snap.
