The horned goats running around the yoke of this sweater are a traditional Scandinavian design, used here in a fun and way.

Sized for teens and adults, the sweater is made all in one piece from the hem upwards, with no seams to sew.

The Body and Sleeves are worked separately, and joined together at the yoke.

The colour-work pattern is fully charted, and is worked using the stranded technique.

Neat mock-cable rib borders finish this classic silhouette.
