Original Pattern: #08 Cabled Yoke Pullover

Knitter Extraordinaire: Heidi (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Heidi changed this from bottom up to top down, and also adjusted the neck for a looser, more casual turtleneck. Great details (really, you should read them) can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: You probably know Heidi from her beautiful, easy-to-wear garment designs, so it’s no surprise that she made this utterly stunning sweater modification. Making this top down was very true to Heidi’s knitting style, and allowed her to try it on as she went, especially as she was making a neckline modification. It was very smart to begin with the yoke on a top down modification, so that she could make any other modifications to sleeves and the bod y as she went. The result is a beautiful cozy sweater that looks perfect for winter, with a neckline that looks elegant and comfortable. Perfection!

    that sweater is the ideal, cozy, garment. I love cables and the mods on this one are stunning!

      I hear you- I so love this sweater! I really adore tweed, and the cabled yoke is so beautiful!

      I agree, so dreamy!!

      I totally agree, it’s so lovely! But I do have a weakness for tweed. 🙂

    What a great job Heidi did. It terrifies me to think of trying to convert a bottom up to a top down. It seems intimidating and hard.

      Especially with a cabled yoke like this! But if it isn’t going to work out, better to find out before knitting the rest of the sweater before tackling the hardest part.

    Knowing this is top down, makes we want to try it right now! Will be adding to my favorites for a near future project.

      Knitting top down is often a little more challenging right out of the gate, but worth it to make sure it fits and is working out before you get too far into it! So much easier to rip back, if needed.

      I agree! I know most sweaters look cozy really, but this somehow seems like a totally hug of cozy.
