Bobble Yoke Sweater

Bobble Yoke Sweater

I first made the child’s version of this bobble yoke sweater last winter for Caroline. As soon as I saw hers, I knew I had to have one for myself. Yellow is my favorite color but not just any shade of yellow…bright, lemony yellow is what makes my heart happy.

As a child I was SUPER into those matching mother-daughter outfits they used to sell in the J.C. Penney catalog…my mom, not so much. Now as a mother, I see where she was coming from, but having this same super cute sweater in different color ways seemed an acceptable modern day alternative.

This sweater is just so, so cute. I love that it is a little bit preppy and totally looks like something I would gladly buy. It is a really lovely project that I want to make again and again. Which of my friends wants one next?!

The Details

My Notes


I made the size with chest circumference 36 inches and it fits me well. It has plenty of ease, but not so much that it looks shapeless. It looks just right!


This pattern is well written and straightforward. The piece has a top-down, seamless construction. My only real modification has been to use one needle size down for the neckline, waistline, and cuff ribbing (US size 4).


If you know the basics of knitting (knitting and purling) and are able to read a pattern, this would be an excellent sweater for a beginning knitter. The bobbles take a little getting used to but once you have made a few, it’s no big deal at all.
