The Yorkville Sweater is a cosy cropped pullover with a hi-lo hem giving the lower back area a little more coverage! With a slightly relaxed fit and all over textured patterning it makes a super comfy sweater. I wanted something easy and warm that I could throw on over any outfit and this has proven to be just the sweater I wanted for that!

The sweater is knit from the top down, you start with the back piece knit flat and then you pick up stitches for the front and shape the neckline and once the front and back are both at the end of the arm hole shaping you will be joining the work to knit the rest of the body in the round. The sleeves are then picked up and the caps are shaped with short rows before continuing to knit down the rest of the sleeve incorporating a panel of the texture stitches to tie in with the rest of the body. All of the short row shaping at the shoulders and sleeve caps are worked in garter stitch giving it some details and added interest in the finished garment.


I have created THREE coupon codes so you can either purchase the pattern for full price, or with 20%, 40% or 60% discounts. I wanted to provide this pattern with a range of pricing options as I know not everyone can afford patterns at full cost. If you would like to support my channel and the work I am doing, and you have the means to do so then paying for this pattern at one of the higher price points is a great way to do that.

The listed price most accurately reflects the time and work that went into creating this pattern, however, if this is not financially accessible for you then please use one of the codes below.
