knitting inspiration: circular yoke

Sweaters with fair isle yoke are always popular and had a strong presense at this season's caltwalks.
The yoke is created by knitting top-down circular, or  we can knit the body and sleeves to the armhole and join the pieces on the round to continue with the yoke.

Color trend report for AW2017

Every season the team at the Pantone Color Institute evaluates the colors shown by fashion designers in their collections at New York Fashion Week. This information is then used to create The PANTONE Fashion Color Report where we highlight the top 10 colors for men’s and women’s fashion for the upcoming season. For the first time ever we have added London Fashion Week to our seasonal color reportage.

Use this report as a guide to choose the colors of the yarn you are going to use this season to create gorgeous knits.
