Hello! I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet over this past month, work has been busy, the weathers been quite nice and oh yeah my countries political climate has gone absolutely to shit… (pardon my language)
ANYWAY.. I have something exciting to share with you today, my Bairns Crofthoose Yoke pattern is available now!
I have done two versions which are both available in the pattern: a long sleeve and a short sleeve one. I have used Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper weight but you could use any 4ply yarn. I rejigged the chart from my adult yoke pattern and removed one row of hooses as well as keeping the background colour the same. I am really happy with how my colours came out, i thought it might be quite a girly pattern but I think it really suits Magnie too. Its available in sizes age 1 up to 12 but the ages is just a guide, I have a quite detailed size chart in the pattern.
The jumper is knit in the round to the oxters (armpits) both sleeves are knit, it is all joined together, raglan shaping is worked and then you cast on extra steek stitches to work the yoke in the round.
At the end you reinforce the steek (by hand sewing/machine sewing/crochet) and cut it open before knitting a short buttonband for easy getting on and off, someone mentioned to me that buttons are not good for girls with long hair so you could easily replace them with snap closures if you wanted to, I love choosing buttons to go with things though! I’m really pleased with how this came out, and I’m also really happy with the photos, of course I’m biased but my niece and nephew really are quite cute!!
So if you want to make your own Bairns Crofthoose Yoke you can buy the pattern here on Ravelry
