If you like circular yoke sweaters, but don’t care much about the good-girl look usually associated with garments constructed in this manner, try this one for a change: “Yokester” is a seamless sweater worked from the top down with a circular yoke, featuring a wide neckline, contemporary large-holed lace pattern on the yoke and asymmetrical ribbing at the hem – certainly not your run-of-the-mill pullover! It comes with two sleeve length options and optional fading instructions if using hand-dyed yarn. The two versions shown are knit in: short-sleeve option with fading effect in Dye Dye Done Alpa-Si-Li (50% Alpaca, 25% Silk, 25% Linen): 100g/ 437 yards [400 meters]; long-sleeve version in Dye Dye Done Delicious (70% Alpaca, 20% Silk, 10% Cashmere): 100g/ 437 yards [400 meters].

Its loose fit could almost be called oversize – choose one size smaller if you prefer a more fitted sweater.


“Yokester” was created in collaboration with Dye Dye Done. If you would like to try the yarn used for the sample, you can find it here.
