My Inner Viking is a close-fitting top down yoke pullover with simple, but catching color work and two sleeve options - raw stockinette bind off flared sleeve and traditional ribbed tapered sleeve.
I have combined a traditional Nordic motif with modern shape to give it a slight edge.

The waist and hip shaping is done in the back rather than the sides.
