Moving to the Front? Back?




When I first saw the picture of the yoke by Phyllis Sparks, I expected the wide portion to be the back.  However, in the book, she says that is the front.  I hope it can be worn either way.  I'll just have to see how it drapes when it is done.

Above is "Yoke Circle 8," the center of the wide section.  At this point, I had taken off several weeks to work on the Rose Mignonette doily.  By the time I got back to the yoke, I must have forgotten everything I knew about the short bare thread spaces.  I worked this motif at least 3 times.  I can't remember if the picture above is the final or next to last effort.  The center is a little crowded, but it is in Mrs. Sparks' photo as well.  I made the picots in the outer round a little longer to prevent cupping.



Here is the picture of the whole yoke from the book again to help you keep your bearings.

  1. That's interesting, I'd also have expected the square part to be the back.

  2. I would have guessed the same as you, front to back. I bet it can go either way.

    I was thinking the same thing - the square part was the back. Looking more closely at the picture, though, I can see - sort of - how they designed it so the square part was the front. Now I'm curious - will it work either way or not? Either way, it will be gorgeous when it's finished.
