Inspired by traditional Icelandic circular yoke sweaters, Telja is knit in the round from the bottom up.

The stranded yoke is worked, and then the slightly scooped neckline is finished with an applied i-cord.

The pattern I picked for this garment is from the book Ornaments and Patterns found in Iceland. It contains a collection of traditional textile patterns from Icelandic manuscripts from as early as 1700.
