Tangled Yoke

My Tangled Yoke Cardigan is coming down to the wire. Some of the modifications I made were knitting the ribbing on the sleeves and body a more traditional length and forgoing the waist shaping.

I've never done a neckband in this way. It's knit in a garter rib for 18 rows. Then you use a much smaller needle (I used US1) to pick up stitches from the base of the neckband and do a 3 needle bind off.

I'm tempted to graft the underarm stitches and block this puppy before knitting the button bands because I'm not sure I like the neckband. It looks a little thick but it might just need a good blocking. I know the cables will look a lot better!

I'm a little behind in my posting, but I wanted to thank Cathy for nominating me for a "you make my day" award. I really appreciate it. While the last year has been rather hit or miss, I've gained so much from my 4.5 years of blogging. I've been thinking about the 150 or so feeds on my Bloglines and realized that they are all my favorites! So I will have to pass on my personal list and just say

Pollyanna has now left the room......


  1. I'd be tempted to block it too if you aren't sure. I really like how it looks, tho, in it's unblocked state.
    I made a note of the books I haven't read in your previous post.

  2. What a lovely sweater pattern. I'm not too sure about the neck either. It doesn't seem to go with the rest of the sweater somehow.
