Modern Icelandic Kit includes the Winter 2017/18 issue of Vogue Knitting and all the Valley Yarns Northampton needed to knit this colorful pullover. A modern take on traditional Scandinavian motifs, this sweater takes its inspiration from Iceland’s 5,000-króna banknote. The pink, red, and gray color palette brings to mind Christmas lights in windows throughout Scandinavia. Modern Icelandic is a standard-fitting, traditional-shaped yoke pullover with contemporary details in the corrugated ribbing at the hem and cuffs and a modern colorwork motif at the yoke. The body and sleeves are knit in the round and joined, and the only seams are at the underarms.
