Bohus Inspired Sweater


Yeah! I finished by classic EZ circular yoke sweater. The bohus-inspired yoke is from Spun Out #5. It was fun to knit with lots of slip stitches and purls that add texture and rich color changes.

I love the fit of this sweater. It is like a comfy old sweatshirt. I increased the arms to 37% after watching Meg's spiral yoke DVD. (The green bits hanging out from the arms are just another tee I'm wearing--it's cold here!) The yoke is probably 1/2" too deep, but that's getting picky.

These sweaters are getting really quick to knit. This one took about 10 days. The yarn is Rowan Kid Classic. Gauge is almost 5 spi.

Maybe I'll try a steeked cardigan next. (Gulp!)

  • Gorgeous! I love the colorwork Bohus patterning too -- I don't think the yoke is too big....

    I'm doing one of these also -- just about had the second sleeve done and realized that I had forgotten to switch needles after the rib -- BOOHOO! Ah well, I hadn't decided on the yoke pattern yet, so it's probably just as well.

    Great job and thanks for posting pix
