FREE Yoked Pullover Knitting Pattern

Happy Free Pattern Friday! Let’s celebrate the weekend with a new knitting project. Here’s a delightfully simple pullover with a pretty star-studded yoke from TRADITIONAL SWEDISH KNITTING PATTERNS by TSB author and knitting designer Maja Karlsson.

FreeYokedPulloverPatternPin-trafalgarbooks“The color scale of the sweater reflects lonely forests and barren heather-covered moors,” says Karlsson. “The silhouette of this design was inspired by the 1960s, with thoughts of the sweaters worn by Malin on Saltkråkan [a fictional island created by Astrid Lindgren for a Swedish television series ‘We on Seacrow Island’].”

In her book, Karlsson delves into the fascinating history of Swedish fibercrafts and its rich tradition of multi-color patterning. Flowers, borders, geometric figures, landscapes, people, and animals, on their own or together, form the backbone of traditional Swedish stranded patterns.
