Pattern Details

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. To find the un-spun icelandic wool try:;; UPDATE 1ST JAN. 2014: I tweaked the chart to make it even better, the old version is perfectly OK, but the update is even nicer:) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round stranded knitting GAUGE 12sts to 10cm / 12 sts to 4 in SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS M, L, XL PREFERRED BRAND/YARN COLORWAY black, grey and white

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:). I live, knit and spin in Iceland: I am also an architect and designer:) and I rent out holiday cottages here on my farm in Iceland.
