A New Knit-Along: The Lapis Yoke Pullover!

Feb 8, 2012

The new knit-along is the Lapis Yoke Pullover. It's available in the Knitting Daily Shop or in the Fall 2010 issue of Knitscene.     
Remember when you voted for a pullover and I said I'd knit the winning design? Well the winner was the Lapis Yoke and I'm just about ready to start. Want to knit this cute knitted pullover along with me?

Here are the details of the pattern:

Lapis Yoke Pullover by Hannah Fettig

(Easy)

Sizes:
34-3⁄4 (39, 44-1⁄4, 48)" bust; shown in size 34-3⁄4"
Yarn: The Fibre Company Organik (70% organic merino, 15% alpaca, 15% silk; 98 yd [89 m]/50 g): seawater, 10 (12, 14, 16) skeins. Yarn distributed by Kelbourne Woolens
Gauge: 17 sts and 25 rows = 4" in St st on larger needles

Tools
• Size 7 (4.5 mm): 24" circular (cir) needle
• Size 7 (4.5 mm): set of double-pointed needles (dpn)
• Size 8 (5 mm): 16" and 24" or longer cir needles, depending on size
• Size 8 (5 mm): set of dpn
• Markers (m)
• Yarn needle
• Stitch holders

Schedule
2/6-2/13: Find or buy pattern, choose yarn, and get gauge
2/14-3/6: Knit yoke
3/7-3/28: Knit body
3/29-4/19: Knit sleeves and complete finishing and blocking

I'm using Cascade Cash Vero for my sweater. It's a 55% merino, 33% microfiber, 12% cashmere blend and it's super soft. I'm knitting this sweater in a slightly larger gauge than the pattern calls for because I want it to be a little roomier. I've got 16 inches per inch on size 9 needles and I like the fabric—it's not too loose. I'm also going to 3/4 sleeves because I just like them better than long sleeves. I'll post a photo of my swatch as soon as I can take a photo of it.

Here's the link to the forum, so come and join me!

Cheers,

Hi  I'm new to posting on the site and hope that this works.  I voted for this sweater and am so glad it won.  I'm using Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk in a beautiful eggplant colour, the silk gives a nice sheen and definition to the yoke ribbing.  I'm at the 2nd increase in the yoke and enjoying the yarn and the pattern.  So nice to hear how others are coming along.

I'll post a photo of my swatch as soon as I can take a photo of it.

*WHAT DOES THIS MEAN??

I knitted this for my Niece for Christmas 2010.  I replaced the yarn with Pistaza.   Great knit!  She loves it!
