Crossover Yoke Floral Bouquet

Crossover Yoke Floral Bouquet

Carrie loved these floral rayon knit prints, but there were only bits and pieces left over after cutting and selling our knit bundles — and so this prototype for the Crossover Yoke Tee was created.  This sample perfectly illustrates how this style featured in Clever Crossing Variations can be used to great advantage with a collection of knit scraps.  The smaller floral print was used to create the crossover yoke front, yoke back and sleeve bands, the larger floral print for the lower front and back, solid magenta for the side panels and neckline binding, and solid ivory for the sleeves and piping. Clever Crossing Variations includes the front yoke pattern, directions for creating a back yoke and inserting flat piping in your knit tee.

It takes a while to plan the layout of the pieces before cutting, but what fun when it all comes together! So search your stash and make yourself a new top.
