“Icelandic wool lives up to its reputation in every way. It is light, warm and very resilient—an experience that every knitter must give themselves the chance at. Einband is all of those things, but even softer and lighter. It’s like wearing a divine cozy cloud. This piece was designed with the iconic Icelandic sweater in mind, but rather than bold colorwork on the yoke, it has a simple, elegant lace that evokes the diamond shapes so often found in a lopapeysa yoke. It is knit top-down and seamlessly, because I do love a top-down seamless yoke. Increases for the yoke are incorporated into the lace pattern. The neck and hems have a subtle ombre color change that could be tweaked for a different look, or omitted altogether. This timeless design will become a wardrobe staple and heirloom knit.” — Beatrice Perron Dahlen
Page 6, At the end of the Sleeves section just before you start the color bands it says to end “with a WS row”. You are working in the round at this point so you are always on the RS.
