And their necks are made for labor,
Stronger are their bones and muscles,
Let them bear thy heavy burdens

This sweater is worked from the bottom up, with colourwork at the yoke. You can knit the colourwork pattern with the main colour and contrast colour as shown in the chart, or you can switch them so that the pattern uses the same colour as the contrast colour as is used in the sleeves and the bottom of the sweater. If knitted with Icelandic wool, the sweater protects from rain, wind and freezing temperatures.
