Vintersol (“winter sunshine“) is inspired by a walk in a frosty, wintery meadow. This example is made with a soft and wooly double strand of Camilla Vad yarn, which creates a lofty worsted weight that is warm yet lightweight. This design lends itself well to a variety of color combinations. Choose 3 colors of yarn or simplify and go with two. You can even fade the background of the yoke, creating a gradient, while using a light color for the motif.
Drawing on the beautiful simplicity of nature, this Icelandic style pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down, starting with a simple rolled neckline. Using worsted weight yarn, this sweater works up quickly. The yoke is knit in stranded color work, then short row shaping is added to the back of the sweater to shape the shoulders and neckline. Optional, gentle waist shaping is included.
