This yoke Sweater is knitted in the round, from bottom up with seamless sleeves. This is an Icelandic style yoke, but with only two colours, as the original Fair Isle style patterns. It is inspired by a traditional over hundred years old Faroese fair isle pattern, which has been altered a little.
Knit and purl, cast-on and bind-off. Decreasing and increasing. Stranded colorwork. Working from chart and working in the round with circular needles.
Available in Danish and English.
