View Full Version : Yoke sweater Bohus style
I knitted this years ago, but I just want to show it off a little. I spun the yarn and designed the sweater inspired by the Bohus sweaters, but I took EZ's advice about keeping the yoke design smaller. The brown yarn is a natural wool color.

That is gorgeous. I love the scalloped effect of the yoke.

That is lovely. Do you have your own sheep, also?

:passedout: I love that!!! Very pretty
"That is lovely. Do you have your own sheep, also?"
No, but I did prepare my own fleeces that I had bought.
I'd like to add that one thing I learned from this sweater is that next time I make a yoke sweater I will be sure to do short rows for about 1.5 inches in the back (I didn't on this one). The sweater looks fine, the back isn't shorter than the front, but although it is pretty comfortable, it would be more comfortable if the front of the neck was lower and the way to do that is with the short rows in the back.
That's a fabulous looking sweater!
