Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • stranded knitting

Pattern Description:

The yoke pattern is an adaptation of a needlework pattern taken from a manuscript dating back to the 1800s from Hruni, in South Iceland. The sweater has a fitted shape, flaring out at the bottom edge of body and sleeves, but is designed with ease.
Method:
Body and sleeves are worked in the round from lower edge to the underarms, and then joined to work yoke in the round. Stranded knitting in yoke: a very long pattern repeat of 18 sts makes this technically a bit tricky - but rewarding!!!
The sweater is knitted as one piece, only a few sts under the arms will need to be stitches together at the end.

My mother taught me how to knit when I was little... I think I knitted my first sweater when I was about 12... I used to knit under the table in school when I could get away with it...and I have not stopped knitting since:).
