Floral Yoke Cardigan

Perfect for the intermediate knitter looking for some practice with pattern charts, the Floral Yoke Cardigan is a flirty, feminine way to layer. This simply constructed knit cardigan pattern features a row of colorwork flowers along the yoke. The stockinette body is complemented by a seed stitch edge. This knit cardigan pattern can easily be adapted for any time of the year by using colors to match the season.

Oh, BTW....correction and a typo Add "increase" to sleeves directions. (Change to St st and inc. 1 st each end every 9th row 5 (5, 0, 0, 0) times) "for" not "fir." Very nice pattern ! Thanks for sharing.

I think this is a bottom-up pattern. The sleeves, fronts, and back are knit and then joined together, to knit the yoke with flowers with all the parts. (ending with the neck.) Nice pattern !

Floral yoke cardigan knitting pattern is a top down project, knit almost entirely in one piece. The kind of patterns I prefer to knit.
