The Yarn Therapist began her yarn-dyeing journey with the tricky, mathy art of self-striping sock yarn. Having mastered that, she has expanded to make these incredible self-striping sweater yokes! Beautiful stripes that maintain an even width as the sweater yoke grows, and no ends to weave in!

Check out Strange Brew from Tin Can Knits for a whole book of well-suited, yoked sweaters! We also recommend Flax, Brick, Baby Sophisticate, or Fern & Feather. These yokes work beautifull for colourwork as well!  Just make sure to check how much of the contrasting colour you need, and buy the closest yoke to that amount of yardage. 

The yokes are designed to work with most top-down sweater patterns, but not every single one will suit. The best type of pattern is one that uses even decreases on a raglan angle on either side of the sleeve, or works in a circular yoke. Either a pullover or a cardigan will work well.

Once you have picked your colour, make sure to choose the correct size yoke for your project. Below is a handy chart to guide you through the selection process, and don't hesitate to reach out if you need a hand at all.

Once you have your yarn, all you need to do is cast on your project from the centre of the ball and follow your instructions from there.

Each ball from the Yarn Therapist is skillfully hand-dyed in her home, just outside of Toronto, ON.
