Round Yoke Cardigan

I completed this a while ago but just didn't get it posted.. That seems to be a theeme lately.

Round Yoke Cardigan

Pattern: "Jacket with Raglan Sleeve and Pattern on Yoke" from Drops Design/Garnstudio
Yarn: Lionbrand Cotton-Ease in Charcoal (although, i worked with it for about 3 weeks thinking it was navy before I read the label and realized it was Charcoal... It's navy to me)
Mods: I completed the cardigan but didn’t like how wide the neck was so I ripped back about 15 rows and changed the decreases so that I ended up with about 20 stitches less before doing the neck and binding off. I finished the button holes with a round of blanket stitch as they were stretching out too much to be practical.

I LOVE this cardigan. I wish I could wear it every day. It's cozy and the fit is perfect.

  1. It looks navy to me, too. It's beautiful! Do you have a closeup of the yoke detail?
