Adelaide Yoke Pullover
Icelandic yoke sweaters were first introduced to the public in the mid-twentieth century, inspired by a variety of knitting techniques and cultures that included the Bohus yoke pull-overs introduced by Anna-Lisa Mannheimer Lunn, classic Norwegian lice-stitch sweaters, and intricate beaded collars of the Greenland national Costume.
Although a young technique relative to the lengthy history of knitting, this style of sweater is a true classic design that is easily identifiable among knitters. the Adelaide pullover is directly inspired by Icelandic sweaters but has been updated with a longer, closer fit, waist shaping, and short-rows prior to the stranded patterning for a good fit and comfortable neckline. Ultra-feminine soft colors are utilized in lieu of traditional natural sheep colors for an additional twist on tradition.
Sweater shown measures 35½” (90 cm). Sweater is designed for a close fit with zero ease.
