This is a top-down colourwork yoke, knitted seamlessly in the round. The pattern instructs you on how to knit it with or without waist fitting, full-length or cropped. My objective with this pattern is to give the knitter the tools, experience, and confidence to approach other traditional Norwegian colourwork yoke patterns, which are often less detailed and instructive.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, this topic in my Ravelry group is the best place for swift support. And do take part in the knitalong! Happy knitting!

The suggested yarns are categorised as different weights (sport, fingering, 4ply). This is often because these yarns are from countries that don’t use these categories. However, if you hold strands from each yarn together side by side, you’ll notice they look very much the same. Moreover, the type of yarn that I recommend (2 ply woollen spun) have the advantage that they can be used the same way even if they span from sport weight to light fingering.
