Pattern Description:

Valhalla is boatneck pullover featuring an Entrelac yoke and bands. Worked in the round from the top down with a slightly open fabric to offset the weight of the Entrelac panels. To escape the monotony of rectangular Entrelac scarves and shawls, I designed a modern fitted sweater that uses those addicting little rectangles.

Using DK weight yarn produces an open fabric to compensate for the heavier entrelac panels. If you prefer a denser fabric, worsted weight yarn may be used.

Gauge:

14.5 sts/22 rounds = 4" in stockinette stitch. Stockinette fabric is a bit 'open' to counter the weight of the Entrelac panels.
