Knit Lace Wedge Yoke Sweater

After working on my dad's crazy size 1 needle socks, I needed something chunky that was going to work up quickly. Cue the Lace Wedge Yoke Sweater!



Yarn: Cascade Eco + in Sapphire
Pattern: Lace Wedge Yoke Sweater designed by Eunny Jang for Choose Your Own Sweater Adventure Craftsy class



I whipped this sweater up in less than two weeks. Of course, it was during Christmas break and I didn't have much else going on. But it definitely took less time than Dad's socks!

I think the neckline is a bit too wide because I knit the yoke in a looser gauge than I did the rest of the sweater. Oops. I was not paying attention, mostly because I was watching movies during the knitting of most of the sweater.

To get the sweater pattern, you have to be enrolled in Eunny Jang's Choose Your Own Sweater Adventure class. I like the class a lot because it gives you what Eunny calls a "master recipe" for the sweater and then you can pick what kind of yoke, sleeves, and edge treatments you want. I chose the lace yoke and bracelet sleeves, and I chose rolled hems on the sleeves and edge.

I had quite a bit of yarn left, so I'm thinking about doing the cable yoke sweater using this sapphire and another color. Color block! This time I swear I'll pay attention to the gauge. Heh.

  1. This sweater is really pretty! I always say that I will knit a sweater… someday. I'm just not sure when that will be. I'll definitely have to get some tutoring for that, since I only learned to knit a couple of years ago and am mostly self-taught :)
