Circular yoke sweaters are extremely popular right now, but fitting them to your body can often be a challenge. From necklines to shoulder and bust fit, we’ll look at circular yokes and how to shape them to you! In this online workshop, you will learn to take measurements of your own body specifically for circular yokes and then learn about different ways of shaping yokes, how to determine which method is best for you, and how to convert patterns to your desired method. You will make a map that acts as a guide for making all your future yoke sweaters and learn tricks for getting your best fit yet! 

In this workshop, you will: 

  • Take key measurements for yoke fit; 
  • Learn about the two types of yoke shaping, and which will work best on your body; and 
  • Learn modifications for necklines, armholes, and chests/busts.
