Help with Pattern

I’m not a very experienced knitting and I’m really struggling with this pattern, I’m so confused. It’s from the Love Knitting website.

I have some photos of what I’ve done so far.

The step I am confused about: image image image

Right Front Yoke
From WS, place right front yoke sts back onto needle, join yarn and continue in Garter st until piece measures 2 1/2 (2 1/2, 3, 3, 3 1/4) in. (6.5 (6.5, 7.5, 7.5, 8.5) cm) from beg of neck divide, end with a WS row.
Next Row (buttonholes - RS): *K3 (4, 4, 5, 5), yo, k2tog (for buttonhole); rep from * 2 more times, k to end. Knit 3 rows.
Bind off.

And can’t seem to understand how the pattern works. Do I just place the stitches from the first Yoke onto a stitch holder and then continue knitting straight into the next yoke (attached the two pieces with a hole in the centre). I can’t see how it becomes a cardigan so I think I have done something wrong

What is the name of the pattern from Loveknitting? The link didn’t work.
Sounds like a top down cardigan?

Hi, thank you for replying. It’s called

Lion Brand® Superwash Merino Cashmere Strawberry Pink Sideways Cardigan and Hat from the Love Knitting website.

I can copy the pattern if needed.

I hope you can help!

The name of the pattern is just fine. We can’t post large portions or entire patterns here because of copyrights.

This cardi is knit first as a yoke from the right sleeve (as you would wear the sweater) towards the center and then on to the left sleeve. Sts are then picked up along the yoke and the body is knit down to the hem.
This diagram attempts to show the direction of knitting the yoke from left to right in the photos. The first shows before you’ve joined yarn on the WS to work the right front yoke and second shows the finished right front yoke with buttonholes. I used numbers in inches for the smallest size.



The copyrighting issue makes sense, thank you for explaining as I am new to the site.

Thank you so much for your help, that’s really useful. The drawings are also very helpful. I am so glad you have replied as I am knitting for a new baby who is arriving soon!

Just another quick question. As I start

knitting onto the right front yoke, is it supposed to still be attached to the back yoke?

No, it’s not attached. The separation between the right front yoke and the back yoke it going to be part of the neck opening.
