Valhalla is boatneck pullover featuring an Entrelac yoke and bands. Worked in the round from the top down with a slightly open fabric to offset the weight of the Entrelac panels. To escape the monotony of rectangular Entrelac scarves and shawls, I designed a modern fitted sweater that uses those addicting little rectangles.

The Stockinette stitch body is knit at a loose gauge. The entrelac panels are dense and heavy, and I didn’t want the whole sweater to feel weighted down. You can change to a worsted weight yarn if you prefer a denser fabric.
