Basic info
This yoked 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 stranded pattern, which has been altered a little.

Skills required
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.

Sizes available
XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL. On pictures is shown a size XS. When choosing size, the chest size is the most important. The sweater size is fitted.

Yarn usage
Size XS - S: 280-300g of base colour (bc) (728 - 780 meters) and 70 g of contrast colour (cc) (182 meters).
Size M - L: 320-350 g of bc (832-910 meters) and 100g of cc (260 meters).
Size XL - XXL: 370-400 g of bc ( 962 - 1040 meters) and 100g of cc (260 meters).

I always add about 10% to the yarn requirements, when calculating yarn usage.
