The Iðunn pattern is worked top-down, a method I truly love for sweaters, it is shaped in the back below the stranded pattern with short rows for a more flattering fit, the yoke pattern is quite short (very important for those of us with ample upper front sides) and as an option it contains short-row elbows. The elbow idea came to me after endless mending of sweater elbows -- in fact it’s very logical that the elbows are the weak point of the sweater -- arms bend, elbows stick out, fabric stretches -- so shaping the elbows with short rows, thus adding an extra bit of fabric just where it’s needed is a good preventive measure. If you are too excited, you can of course skip the elbow shaping and just finish the sleeves without shaping.
