Lightly on the knee she settles,
Finds a nesting-place befitting
Where to lay her eggs in safety.

This sweater is knitted from the bottom up, with a colourwork pattern at the yoke. In the sample sweater, the pattern is knitted in just one contrast colour, but you can also choose to use different colours for each of the different sections – perfect for left-over yarn from other projects. Knitted from Icelandic wool, the sweater is weather-proof and perfect for the outdoors, but you can also choose to use a less warm yarn for indoor wear.

XXS (XS, S, M, L) (XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
The sweater is designed to have a slightly oversized fit. Choose a size with approx. 2–6″ / 5–15 cm of positive ease at chest.
