oh, my Untangled Yoke is done, and I am so in love....!
The fit, the yarn, the pattern - it's all great.
Pattern: Tangled Yoke - Eunny Jang, Interweave Knits
Yarn: Grignasco Tango - Graphite
Needles: 3.75mm Addi Turbo
- Removed the cable from the yoke. Yeah, I know. It's the whole point of the pattern, for a lot of people. It just didn't really do it for me, but the rest of the elements of the garment did. I'm glad I took it out. I love the clean, simplicity of my cardigan, and can imagine wearing it everywhere
- The fit of this garment is superb. I think it would have to be the happiest I have been with a finished garment, ever
- The construction. Hello, knit almost entirely in one piece. Plus, sleeves knit in the round then joined in for the yoke. The only seaming was a small amount of grafting under the arms
- The yarn. Bought on clearance at my LYS, this garment has cost roughly $28. The yarn is lovely - a warmish charcoal gray with tan and baby blue tweed flecks. Yum
I would gladly contemplate using this pattern again - maybe with a variation on the garter rib bands? A slightly heavier weight yarn too, perhaps...The Tango knits up beautifully soft and drapey, but it is a thinner-weight cardigan, definitely.
