Get that flushed-cheek, fresh-air feeling with the Nordic-inspired Threipmuir yoke sweater. This pattern is aimed at more experienced knitters but could be a good stepping stone for someone at an intermediate level too.
Specifically evoking the Icelandic Lopapeysas yoke style, this slouchy, comfortable sweater pattern lets you combine the colours you love wearing to create a unique handmade piece. One of our favourite features of this style is the way that the yoke feathers into the main body of the sweater, which means it avoids the visual heaviness of some more blocky yoke patterns. And you don’t have to worry about long floats while constructing the yoke detailing - the Threipmuir pattern uses a fun slipped stitch trick to avoid them.
This style looks great in a wide variety of fingering, or 4-ply weight yarns. Non-superwash, 'sticky' wool yarns are ideal.
When working out your size for the sleeve and body lengths, bear in mind the dropped arm and measure from around 1½" below your armpit.

The pattern includes 16 sizes, with a finished chest circumference of 32 1/4" to 72 1/4", equivalent to ready to wear sizes XS-7XL. Our models are wearing the size 9 with between 2 and 8" of positive ease. Directions are included for regular and tall lengths, a broader yoke in proportion to the chest, and optional waist shaping. Note that the numerical sizes are provided simply for ease of following the pattern, and do not correspond to any sizing system, use the measurements provided to choose a size.
Yardage and the schematic group the regular yoke and lengths, and the broad yoke and lengths, however all options can be mixed and matched for your perfect fit. Choose the regular yoke circumference if you usually find that the shoulders on womenswear garments fit or the shoulders on menswear garments are too wide, and the broad yoke circumference if you usually find that the shoulders on menswear garments fit or the shoulders on womenswear garments are too narrow. Everyone's body proportions are different but the regular lengths are most likely to fit if you are under 5' 8" and the tall if you are 5' 8" or taller.
