Six Yoke Jumpers Patters To Covet

Wool jumpers with colour work yokes are all the rage at the moment in the shops. Brora has released its own version in conduction with Wool Week 2018, but at £135 it's out of a lot of people's price range!

Knitting your own is certainly the way to go. But what design to choose? Here's A Woolly Yarn's top five yoke pattern picks:

Kave Davies loves yokes so much she wrote a book about them. Published in 2014, Yokes contains 11 designs. Our favourite is Asta Sollilja, which features the Icelandic hammer rose motif. We love the coloured hem, neck and cuffs, plus the shade contrast between the grey and blue. Download the Yokes ebook for £19.99 on Ravelry.

The Shetland-born designer has come up with this fun, long-length jumper with a contrast yoke. It uses 4ply yarn. The pattern costs approximately £8.71 on Ravelry.

Another Icelandic-inspired yoked jumper knitted in 4ply wool. The yellow in the design really stands out against the dark colour of the body. It costs £7 to download Threipmuir on Ravelry.
