Basic info
This yoked sweater is knitted in the round, from bottom up with seamless sleeves. This is a Faroese (or Icelandic) yoke, knitted with two colours, as the original Fair Isle style patterns. This sweater design is inspired by a over hundred years old Faroese stranded pattern, which I have altered a little. The Bohéme sweater design can be used by the whole family, and that is why I also have designed a baby and a kids version. If you knit this sweater in neutral colours, the sweater can be inherited from a boy to a girl or vice versa. The Bohéme sweater for men, is available soon.

Skills required
Knit and purl, cast-on and bind-off. Decreasing and increasing. Stranded colorwork. Working from chart and working in the round with circular needles.

Available in Danish and English.
