Kaldagil is a nearly-seamless yoke sweater, knit in the round from the bottom up. Body and sleeves are worked in the round from lower edge to underarms, then joined to work the yoke in the round. At the top of the body (back) are some extra rows worked back and forth to make it higher at the back. The body is a bit cropped and has an extra ease for a more boyfriend look sweater.

Kaldagil is available in six sizes and is knitted with traditional
Icelandic knitting techniques.
