Yoke – Tilde
The stranded colourwork yoke has a top-down construction. The name of this sweater has two inspiring origins. There is my aunt Tilde, who knitted me fabulous clothes (including trousers) when I was little. And there is Brigitte & Clotilde (@bouclelaine) who sponsored this lovely yarn that inspired me to design this yoke. I really enjoyed knitting this colourful and great yarn.
