To circular yoke or not to circular yoke... I'm still debating on how I'm going to construct Ben's sweater, but these beautiful sweaters are making me think I should try my hand at a circular yoke. I was leaning towards making it a set in sleeve sweater, but pretty much all of the fair isle sweaters that I've been inspired by lately are circular yokes, so I think the universe is telling me something.
So, the sweaters I've been especially inspired by lately...
Top Left: Flugeldar by Kiyomi Burgin, a pattern that she recently published that is sized for both men and women (yay!). You can find it on Ravelry here
Top Right: Atlas by Jared Flood, from Brooklyn Tweed's BT Kids collection. Unfortunately it's only sized for children but a girl can dream (also, I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to combine the fair isle chart for Atlas with another fair isle sweater sized for men, say Grettir?). You can find the pattern on Ravelry and on Brooklyn Tweed's website here
Bottom Left: Statis by Leila Raabe from Brooklyn Tweed's Spring Thaw collection. It looks so delicate and I love the simplicity of the small repeating motif. Of course I could never see this on Ben, but I just might have to knit one for myself :-) Pattern here
Bottom Right: Grettir - another Brooklyn Tweed pattern! This one also by Jared Flood from the BT Winter 13 collection. I have had my eye on this sweater since it was first published in 2013 - particularly the turtleneck version for women (this is another one that's sized sized for both genders :-)!) Check it out here
No surprise most of them are from Brooklyn Tweed :-)
