The Art of Circular Yokes is a knitting guide that teaches how to calculate and knit circular yokes on fifteen individual sweater patterns. After having read through it, I think this would be a valuable tool for the expert knitter. The volume begins with the extensive use of mathematics needed to knit circular yokes. The patterns are original and well-explained with detailed instructions, tips, charts and beautiful photographs. Also included are abbreviations, a glossary, introduction of the designers and yarn sources. All in all, a well-designed knitting book that most knitters would love on their bookshelves. Thank you to F + W Media and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.… (mais)

The Art of Circular Yokes A Timeless Technique for 15 Modern Sweaters by Kerry Bogert
Starts with table of contents where there is an introduction, math solutions and the patterns.
What i like is that the pattern name is also followed by the designers name.
Intro starts with definition of art form and there is a lot of math involved in these patterns.
Take your time and do it right and the sweater is going to fit just perfectly.
There are sketches when the math construction is explained in details.
The measurements are shown using Imperial and Metric measurements.
Shaping is also discussed in detail. Each pattern has it's own pictures and also some show consution pictures.
Summary of the item is described by the designer.
Photos are stunning as are the colors chosen.
Pattern has finished sizes, yarn used, needles sizes and notion. Gauge is also included along with any notes for the specific pattern.
Charts are also included if there are differnt colors in the sleeve and hem sections along with the yoke itself.
Glossary is also noted when it comes to some stitching techniques, that section is at the end of the book.
Finishing brings the whole item together.
Lot of choices to select the one you want to make along with a lot of different sizes.
I felt the patterns are not that difficult, not sure I'd want to tackle this is a beginner.
Love that the format is the same for all patterns. Like some of the patterns enough to want to knit them into an infant afghan for charity.
My favorite to try would be Sigriour because of all the color changes and Modern Art because of the symbols on the yoke and this one is reversible.
Abbreviations are included at the end along with stitches explained that are used in the patterns.
Glossary includes methods of casting on, bind offs, short rows. lifted increases, seaming, and finishings. These are also shown using diagrams.
About the designers is the next section in alphabetical order.
So talented!
Yarn sources are includes with linkable INTERNET access.
Knitting resource books are also listed.
Received this review copy from F+W Media Interweave via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Art of Circular Yokes is edited by Kerry Bogert contains a collection of 15 lovely sweater patterns by a delightful assortment of designers. I am a big fan of the circular yoke sweater for because of minimal seaming and fit as it is a style that seems to flatter most body types. This book provides a nice assortment of patterns, top down and bottom up constructions, cardigans and pullovers, Lace, cables, stranded colourwork, traveling and twisted stitches are all covered with beautiful photographs and clear instructions. I will definitely be adding this book to my collection. #NetGalley #KerryBogert #TheArtofCircularYokes #FWMedia #Interweave… (mais)
