From Védís Jónsdóttir’s Notes “Body and sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm. Body and sleeves are then joined and yoke is worked in the round over entire sweater. Round begins at left side of body but on yoke at joining of body and sleeve on left side of back. The sweater is loosely knitted and could grow a little longer after rinsing.” - p.6
