From Schoolhouse Press:

Two beautiful Yoke sweaters from Elizabeth Zimmermann. Her daughter, Meg Swansen did the sleuthing and reknit these updated versions - one from a chart in EZ’s journal and one pictured in a family photograph. The motifs are related, but distinct. Knit them in our feather-light Unspun Icelandic wool, or colorful Shetland Spindrift wool. Includes instructions (one cardigan, one pullover), charts, illustrations, and techniques like short rows, steeking, and weaving.

Print version comes in a 3-hole, archival quality sheet protector.

Sold in the leaflet Two Yoke Sweaters on the Schoolhouse Press website. The leaflet includes the patterns for this pullover and Lloie’s Cardigan.

The pullover as depicted on the website calls for 4 wheels of the unspun icelandic, worked single strand. 1 wheel each Steel Gray, Silver Gray, Cream and Blacksheep. Optional: 5 yards of an unexpected color. The pullover would require 12-13 balls of main color; 2 balls for main color in yoke and 1 ball each contrast color.
