Cable Yoke Cardigan

Sometimes a pattern is so good that you have to knit it twice. This is one of those.  The pattern is "Top down Baby and Children Cable Yoke Jacket by Kyoko Nakayoshi.  And our girls have been getting a lot of wear out of each of them.  

Cardi's and leaves
The second and most recent is this red version that was knit last fall out of Quince and Co. Osprey in a color called "Peak's Ferry".  It is a really, really good red.  Not too orange, not too blue.  Just right.  And the small fry loves this cardigan.  Having only two buttons near the yoke keeps her movements from being restricted (we can't have that!) And really who doesn't love a good hood.

In progress
The first cable yoke cardigan that I made was back in 2010. I knit this in the NICU, when the small fry was so busy learning to breathe and eat and grow, and my anxious self was trying to stay occupied.  This first  has been worn by both girls and is wearing well.  It was knit out of Shibui Merino Worsted in a color way called Pagoda.
