A bairns (children’s) version of my Crofthoose Yoke. This pattern is knit entirely in the round with extra stitches cast on at the centre back and worked in a stripe pattern as indicated in the chart. When the jumper is finished the steek is reinforced, cut open and a buttonband picked up.

GAUGE 28 sts and 40 rows to 10cm / 4” measured over stocking stitch on 3mm needles

NEEDLES & ACCESSORIES

2.5mm (UK 13-12 / US 1.5) circular needles or DPNs for working body, sleeves and neck rib
3mm (UK 11 / US 2.5) circular needles or DPNs for working body and sleeves
Optional: 3.5mm (UK 10-9 / US 4) circular needles or DPNs for yoke – my Fair Isle knitting is quite tight so I choose to go up half a needle size for the yoke. You may not feel this is necessary but take time to check your gauge and adjust as necessary.
Stitch markers (1 in a different colour for beginning of round)
Stitch holders or waste yarn
