Notes: Tellervo is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up; the body and sleeves are worked separately then joined at the underarm before
the yoke is worked with raglan shaping. The sleeves begin with slim-fitting long cuffs and then become oversized. The button band is picked up from the front edge of the body and folded double for a neatly finished look. Tellervo works best with rustic, woolly yarns; softer and smoother yarns might drape differently and change the look of the sleeves.
