Fjolla Sweater Yarn Kit


the name Fjolla comes from the Albanian word fjollë, meaning “fine snow” or “snowflake” and to me, it perfectly describes the combination of the wonderfully soft and light fabric the lace weight yarn (held double) and the pattern make in this pullover

Fjolla by Isabell Kraemer is worked seamlessly from the top down, with 2 strands of mYak Baby Yak Lace held double throughout. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. First the yoke is worked back and forth to the final neck CO. When the neck shaping is complete, the yoke is worked in rounds to sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cast on. Then the body is worked in rounds to the ribbing. The sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeve in rounds, top down, to the cuffs. Neck finishing is worked last.
