Our Bobble Yoke Sweater is no longer just for itty bitties! When we posted our original pattern for Babies + Toddlers, your response was loud and clear, “I love it, but what about my 10-year old? Wait, what about me?!” We heard you, and so, we’re happy to announce that we’ve expanded our Bobble Yoke Sweater Pattern collection to include sizes for both Kids and Women. Now everyone can get in on the action!

The sizes may have changed, but the easy top-down construction and the charming details remain the same. The Bobble Yoke Sweater still starts at the collar with two strands of Jade Sapphire’s nearly weightless 2-Ply Mongolian Cashmere, moves on to a marled yoke that combines the 2-Ply with Purl Soho’s beautiful Line Weight merino, and finishes with doubled Line Weight for rich color and a soft-but-sturdy fabric.

And just like the original, this sweater is designed for heirloom giving, for passing down from mother to child or sibling to sibling, for knitting with love. It is that special! -Laura
