Designing Round Yoke Sweaters

Decorating around the yoke of a sweater is a wonderful way to bring focus to the neck area. If you want to create designs for round yoke sweaters, whether for your own pattern or to modify an existing pattern with different motifs, this is the a class for you. We will start with some basic calculations to make a round yoke sweater that fits well.  All kinds of stitches can be used for a round yoke design, including colorwork, cables, or texture stitches. We will also explore ways to use motifs, either from stitch dictionaries or your own, to create a design for a round yoke sweater. 

There is no homework for this class.

Instructor: Connie Peng
Instructor Bio: Connie, aka yellowcosmo, designs a wide range of sweaters and accessories designs using colorwork, cables and lace. Coming from a studio art background, she often starts her designs with original motifs of her own. Her first love is designing with colorwork, but she also enjoys working with unique combination of cables and lace in her designs. Born in Taipei, she moved with her family to San Francisco when she was in 12. The experience of learning a new language, living in a new culture in a vibrant city built a foundation of curiosity in her. She studied art at University of California at Santa Cruz and later earned her MFA in painting at American University in Washington, DC. She moved to Lake Tahoe for snowboarding and found a job teaching art at a local college; meanwhile she started designing knit patterns. She takes her sense of adventure and her artistic sensibility into her knitwear design, making each design unique and fresh. Connie has published over 100 designs in the past 10 years and her designs appeared in Amirisu magazine in 2014 and 2015.
