A uniquely constructed yoke; the overlace and contrast underlayer are knitted separately on picked up stitches from the same circle of icord. The two layers are joined at the bottom of the yoke with a three needle icord bind-off. Lots of fun, and much easier than it sounds!
The remainder of the body and sleeves are knitted on picked up stitches from the icord bind-off. Short rows drop the front neck for a flattering fit on ladies with larger chests (like me!).
Mallorn is available as either a single pattern, or as part of the A Time To Knit collection (ebook or softcover book).
