Bright, Happy Christmas Sweater - Finished!

Merry Christmas!  Happy Kwanzaa!  Seasons Greetings!  Happy Hanukkah! (did I leave anyone out?)

My Christmas sweater is FINISHED, and I can now wear it to all the holiday parties I will be attending this year.  Woo Hoo! :D

Using Bernat "Happy Holidays" yarn, I made the Yoke Sweater, which was designed for Bernat Softee Chunky yarn.

My sweater is so sparkly and fun to wear.  I just love it!

After completing the yoke, I got to work on the collar, knitting it in the round with a 16" circular needle.  I didn't make it as long as the directions called for, because I have a short neck.  The collar went very quickly, and it was fast work to fold it inside and attach it securely.

Now, I have the Christmas sweater I've always dreamed of.  Thank you Bernat Yarn!

Thank you, Jan!

Very pretty, You did a good job! Gives me some inspiration to try new things.

I'm glad you like it, Bette!

I truly like your Christmas sweater. I myself have made several christmas sweaters thru the years but have never come across such a beautiful pattern for a child. can you tell me the pattern name so I can look it up? Also since Easter is around the corner, any hints on a great easter sweater for a child?

Hello Marecoll! When I made this sweater, I used a Bernat pattern for the discontinued version of Bernat Softee Chunky. You might be able to request a copy of the "Yoke Sweater" pattern from Bernat by sending a message to You will find several free Bernat patterns for yoke sweaters by searching for "yoke" on the Free Patterns page.
