Yoking it Up

Bohus Yoke


The Bohus yoke is beautiful. It's beautiful. I love it. I've been bad about answering comments (Blogger doesn't make it easy, and it doesn't help that I'm lazy), but the ribbing is the neck, not the waist. I'm about 15 rows into the color chart, and I've used five of the eight colors so far. Here's a closeup:

The yarn is lovely to knit with, and the colors are great. The pattern has very subtle color changes, so the chart (with the color numbers and pieces attached to it) is essential! As I get further into the yoke it's going to take longer and longer to finish each row, so it's nice that the changes come pretty quickly now. Once again, I have to say that this pattern is MUCH easier than it would be if I hadn't taken Susanna's Bohus class at Madrona. I'm still a little concerned that once I'm past the yoke the black stockinette will do me in, but so far so good.

My gosh, this is absolutely beautiful! You're doing such a great job on the fair isle - I'm really impressed!

Looking good so far - can't wait to see how it turns out. I've been contemplating making a Bohus myself. My grandmother came from that area, so lots of reason to try it.

It is lovely! The colours are gorgeous. At some point will you please blog about what exactly in the bohus class made it easier for you to tackle this project?

Your bohus-to-be looks absolutely gorgeous. Is it taking a time-out for a while?
