Sizes given are finished dimensions. You’ll need 11 (11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 18, 20) skeins of MC; 2 (2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5) skeins of CC A; 1 (1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3) skeins of CC B; 1 (1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3) skeins each of CC C and D to knit the different sizes.

Sweater shown uses Fern for MC, Parchment for CC A, Blue Teal for CC B, Oatmeal for CC C, and Dark Mustard for CC D.

I couldn’t let the yoke chapter end without including at least one sweater that evokes my childhood in Maine. When the temperatures drop, the double- and triple-thick fabrics of stranded yoke sweaters keep you toasty warm - and offer a lovely chance to play with color. A turtleneck tops this garment off and promises protection from impromptu snowball fights.

The snowflake pattern is relatively simple to work, and I’ve chosen a soft, warm yarn with extensive color palette for the garment. The depth on this yoke is somewhat generous to allow for the beautiful snowflakes, so please be sure to choose a size with some positive ease in the bust.
