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.

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.

Pattern is available in Danish and English.

I have decided to make two versions of this sweater, one for babies in size 6 months to 24 months knitted in a thinner yarn, with 2-ply sport weight yarn, and the other version is for kids, and is knitted in a 3-ply light worsted weight yarn.
