Cedar is my newest Circular Yoke pattern, designed in honor of a very special friend

It is 25% off throughout this week. No code needed!

It uses two strands of fingering weight to achieve a DK-equivalent gauge… So it would work with most things in your stash! Try double stranding similar or different colors, and any fiber you can think of.

I designed this sweater in honor of my beautiful friend Jodi, as a tribute for her Birthday.
Jodi likes minimal details, she likes circular yoke sweaters and cool fibers, so I picked a beautiful linen yarn to design this for her.
In July 2019 we were so lucky to spend a week together visiting the town of Cedar. It was a time to relax, knit together and tell stories. I named this sweater to remind us of that wonderful time and place.
