Skaftafell was first published in amirisu Winter 2015. I knew I wanted to redesign this sweater to be knit in an Icelandic yarn. I realized that, as it has no colorwork on the arms or lower body, it would be simple to add more chart options to the original. The sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. Body and sleeves are knit seamlessly and joined, and a combination of raglan and circular yoke decreases are worked for a more flattering fit. Additional decreases are incorporated into the colorwork charts. Short rows are worked before the colorwork to raise the back neck. In addition to four colorwork yoke options, Studies in Ice can be worked as a crew neck or funnel neck, and with a ribbed hem or garter stitch hem. Modifications are included for men, which include longer sleeves and
body and broader shoulders (more stitches at the colorwork yoke.)

Also note that each chart is slightly different in where the decreases are placed, and will fit slightly different.
