Meanderings – on yokes

Love a good top-down yoke sweater, but how to align all those motifs?

This week I got a lesson in vertical alignment.

When the yoke for a sweater I designed didn’t look quite right, I went back to the drawing board and discovered that combining motifs is more than just choosing what “looks good” together. It’s putting increases in just the right positions to create a swivel point (stitch/stitches) around which the whole yoke revolves. Trickier than it seems.

See this? The alignment is off.

So it was back to the drawing board. Reknitting and it’s working now.

Interested in seeing progress? Check back next week.
