Yoke – “Emma”
This Yoke design was created in cooperation with
Emma from The Little Grey Sheep. It’s my first
top-down sweater pattern and I really enjoyed
knitting it with this wonderful yarn.

General information for construction
The sweater is constructed as a top-down design and is worked in one piece. All necessary increases are detailed within the chart of the pattern. After the yoke chart, you will have several rounds of raglan increases. Continuing the body and both sleeves separately. The pattern includes short rows which are worked for the neckline and chest shaping.

Knitting technique
Top-down construction, stranded colourwork, jacquard, two colours per round
