Icelandic-style yoked sweater knitted bottom up and in the round.

Instructions for one size (approx. UK size 8/ small female) but pattern works on multiples of 6 so it can be adjusted accordingly.

Gauge: 18st x 24 rows on 4.5mm needles = 10cm x 10cm (St st)
Gauge over pattern: 6 stitches (one repeat) = 3cm

Finished Measurements
Length = 58cm
Chest = 82cm
Arms = 50cm
Neckband = 46cm

Weight = approx. 350g

I used Léttlopi Ash Heather 0054 as the main colour (6x 50g), and 5 colours in the yoke pattern; Lilac Heather 1413, Grape Heather 9432, Pink Heather 1412, Glacier Blue Heather 1404, and Lagoon Heather 9423.
The yoke could be made with less colours if preferred.
