We all have that precious skein or two of handspun fingering-weight yarn that’s just crying out to become something special. Why not turn it into the yoke of a lightweight cardigan, perfect for transitioning from Summer to Fall. Add in a few skeins of a complementary commercial yarn (or more handspun, if you have it), and you’re all set!

The body and sleeves of this sweater are worked from the bottom up with integrated garter stitch button bands, and the yoke is constructed sideways, nipping off a stitch of the body for every garter ridge worked. Short rows shape things into a traditional round yoke turned on its side.

Errata to sizes L, 1X, 2X
After all sleeve increases are worked there should be 58(64, 70, 78, 86, 90, 96) sts. Then 44(48, 52, 58, 62, 68, 72) should be held for the yoke (and the same number of stitches knit for each sleeve in the joining row). This means for the Center Back rows 1-2 should be worked a total of 8(12, 12, 10, 10, 6, 12) times.
