Hurrah for matchy-matchy family knits! I just love a great stranded yoke sweater - they’re striking to look at and so fun to knit. Presenting You & Me, the ultimate pair of adult/kid sweaters.
  • The colourwork yoke is easy to knit, with a small chart and no long floats.
  • With more colourwork to look forward to at the hem and cuffs, you won’t get bored knitting this pullover. Sleeve Island, TAKE THAT!!
  • You & Me Adult is worked in worsted weight yarn for quick results.
  • You & Me Child is knit in fingering weight, so that little bodies aren’t swamped by thicker yarns.
Do you think these could make the perfect contemporary Christmas Jumpers?? Matilda and I will be wearing ours on the big day!

For the inspiration behind the name You & Me, check out one of my favourite indie pop songs, by The Wannadies. You can find it on YouTube, here.

Construction
This pullover is worked seamlessly in the round from the top down. The stranded colourwork yoke is worked from the chart, followed by short-row shaping to raise the back neck. Sts are held for sleeves, and knitting continues down the body, with a colourwork section before the corrugated rib hem. Sleeves are then worked in the round from the top down, with a corrugated rib hem.
