Bobble Yoke Sweater Pattern

A traditional style, plus a beautiful mixture of materials and textures, equals a modern-day classic. Purl Soho's Bobble Yoke Sweater Pattern is knit in one piece from the top down. Along the way you'll encounter a playful marled yoke, shaped by bubbly little bobbles; a technique for working underarm stitches that avoids both sewing and the Kitchener Stitch (!); and simple sleeves knit right off the yoke. This Pattern is available as a PDF download or hard copy and for three size groups, each one sold separately: Babies + Toddlers, Kids and Women. For more information, including a list of materials you'll need to make your own Bobble Yoke Sweater, click Product Details, above.
