A top-down pullover with a dramatic round yoke. This yoke is inspired by Icelandic Lopapeysas but the finer gauge provides a larger canvas for more intricate patterning. The fairly deep yoke and slightly dropped underarm combine with positive ease for a slouchy, comfortable fit. The colourwork slowly feathers into the main colour avoiding the heaviness and unflattering line across the chest that can sometimes result from deeper yoke patterns. This results in wide gaps between the contrast colour in the last few rounds of the yoke. Long floats are avoided with a fun slipped stitch trick.

Note that the sleeves are designed to be long, but the sleeves on the sample are approximately 1½” longer than in the pattern (Ysolda has really long arms). If yours are average length the sleeves should fit like the photos. When measuring for both sleeve and body lengths account for the dropped underarm by starting about 1½” below your armpit.

Yarn
Fingering / 4ply weight yarn. Non-superwash, ‘sticky’ wool yarns are ideal.
