Yoked Sweater


Yoked Sweater 
by Kathy Pennington
Inspired by a friend who makes Suzetta Williams Baby Vest Garter Ridges for charity all the time, her granddaughter, a teenager,  wanted one for herself.  She searched for weeks and could not find the exact pattern she wanted.  In a conversation we wanted to give it a try, so we contacted Suzie and I set out to create this sweater.  Her granddaughter loved it.
I would like to thank Suzie and Erin for their inspiration and Erin for testing the pattern.  I hope others enjoy it also.
I have written in several options that can be made as you go along such as 1 or 2 buttons, and different lengths.  I would suggest you read the pattern carefully before starting.

Nice sweater! I want to make one for myself, but I am a beginner so when I go up to an 11 1/2 needle? I take a lady's medium sweater I am 5fr 7 in. and weigh 136 lbs.
 
This sweater pattern is only hosted here for a friend. I haven't knit it so can't say how large it turns out.
