Threipmuir

Get that flushed-cheek, fresh-air feeling with the Nordic-inspired Threipmuir yoke sweater. This kit will provide you with the pattern and yarn you need to make it in your size, from XS - 7XL. This pattern is aimed at more experienced knitters but could be a good stepping stone for someone at an intermediate level.

You'll be able to download your pattern immediately after checking out and, optionally, add it to your Ravelry library . Create an account to access all of your purchases.

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. If you’d prefer a little more guidance, we have selected five colour combinations of Tukuwool Fingering to purchase as a kit in sizes XS - 7XL, featuring the pattern and enough yarn to complete the sweater in your size.

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.

Needles and notions

Size 2 US / 3mm 16" / 40cm and 32" / 80cm circulars

Size 4 US / 3.5mm 16" / 40cm, 24" / 60cm, 32” / 80cm circulars

Size 21/2 US / 3mm dpns or circulars for your preferred method of working small circumferences in the rnd

Size 4 US / 3.5mm dpns or circulars for your preferred method of working small circumferences in the rnd

Note: the top down yoke requires different needle lengths as the increases are worked, if you don’t have every length available it could be worked on magic loop until the stitches fit comfortably around the longer needle. For the largest sizes, if you don’t like your stitches being squashed on the needles, you might want to add a fourth length towards the end of the yoke.


Sizing

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.
