Dario Tubiana was inspired by the traditional lopapeysa styles of Iceland when designing this handsome sweater. Its stranded colourwork yoke is knitted in a palette of warm hues, which stands out well against the brown background. The body is knitted in the round from the bottom up, then is joined with the sleeves to work the yoke and neck.

This garment is worked entirely in the round. On some chart rounds you will be working three colours in a single round. Take care to hold yarns consistently so
that colour dominance remains the same throughout. Usually the yarn colour held at the bottom when not being worked
will appear the most dominant.
The body and sleeves are worked separately and then joined for the yoke, which is decreased to the neck.
