Jökull is the Icelandic word for glacier, and this striking yoked mantle, worked in Icelandic wool, will keep you toasty-warm whatever the conditions. A simple design, intended as an introduction to circular yoke knitting, Jökull starts with a provisional cast on and is worked all in one piece, with some back and forth sections to create the hand openings, which are later edged with i-cord for a neat finish.
