Design a Sweater, lesson 6: Working the Yoke

The yoke is the most complicated part of a raglan sweater, but I think you’ll find that if you take it slow and work
carefully, it is not very hard at all! The trickiest thing is that the raglan decreases and neckline shaping will be worked
at the same time. This is also the most exciting part of the sweater–we are
nearing the finish line and for the first time, you’ll get to see your work really start to come together. Pun intended.
Let’s get started!

As I promised last week, this is 2 lessons in one handout– the details of neckline shaping which were discussed last week are in here, as well as the information needed ot work the yoke and shoulder decreases.

Lessons 5 and 6

And of course, the videos!

Next week we’ll go over the fine details of finishing, and the week after, it’s graduation! I have a few schemes cooking up for ways to celebrate everyone completing the course (and I think that you all will have completed the course even if you are still working on your sweaters) but if you have any suggestions, please share them in the comments!
