Sigríður is a circular yoke sweater with a boxy shape, where the body has some positive ease and sleeves are close to the body. At the yoke and just before the cuffs, there is a special detail in contrast color made with a delicate stranded colorwork stitch motif. The back neck and the lower back are shaped with short rows, so the piece will dress well and comfortably. Sigríður is a pleasant piece to knit that can be wearer all year long! A sweater that we can live in!

This pullover is worked in the round from the top down. The sleeves are worked circularly from the top down.
The stitch marker is positioned at the center of the back. Change for longer length circulars while working the yoke, when needed.
