Inspired by the simple lines and cheerful motifs of classic Scandinavian style, Greta is an Old-World sweater with a New-World feel. The shorter length gives the allover colorwork a fresh feel, while the turtleneck ensures you still stay warm and cozy.
This sweater is worked in the round from the top down with yoke shaping. All shaping takes place in the main color Stockinette Stitch sections between the colorwork bands. It is divided at the underarms, and the body and sleeves are worked in the round to the bottom. The design, as written, is slightly cropped, but length can easily be added by working additional repeats of the colorwork pattern.
