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.

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.
