Drops cardigan with the textured yoke.
I'm almost up to the armpits and will be starting the sleeves soon(ish). I changed the bottom hem of the sweater from seed stitch to k2, p2 ribbing by following the directions for a different Drops sweater.
To do this, I cast on 204 sts for the second size (The rib pattern calls for casting on 210 sts, but that's with a 7 stitch button band on each side - I'm knitting a 5 st band. So I subtracted 4 sts to delete the extra sts from the button band, then subtracted another 2 sts so I could begin and end my k2, p2 ribbing with knit stitches).
I knit my ribbing to the length I wanted (about 2 1/2 inches), then decreases 31 sts across to get me to the stitch count I needed for the first yoked sweater (173 stitches). From there I plan to follow the pattern as written. But I am going to make the sleeves full length (again by following the ribbed Drops pattern). I'll post more info on that when I get to the sleeves.
In the meantime, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the BEAUTIFUL variegated yarn I plan to use for the yoke. I bought this yarn at SAFF this past fall. I had no plans for it, but fell in love with the gorgeous colors. I hope the textured stitches in this cardigan's yoke will make the most of showing off all the various colors :)
