Inspired by traditional Icelandic circular yoke sweaters, Telja is knit in the round from the bottom up. Short rows are worked on the back of the sweater to bring the front of collar lower than the back. The stranded yoke is worked, and then the slightly scooped neckline is finished with an applied i-cord.
Body and sleeves are worked in the round from lower edge to underarms, then joined to work the yoke in the round. Round begins and ends with a purled st for the steek at front of body. Use a sewing machine to sew over the purl sts before cutting the front opening. There is a waist shaping on the body.
