Fjelltur Sweater - Knitting Pattern
FJELLTUR (from Norwegian: ‘mountain tour’) is an oversized stranded colorwork yoke-sweater with long sleeves, body and a generous neckline. The sweater is knitted from the bottom up in the round, the sleeves are knitted separately and then joined with the body on a long circular needle. The sweater is then shaped with German short rows. FJELLTUR was inspired by the scenery on my favourite mountain tours - the colorwork detail features stylised mountain peaks and spruce trees.
For an oversized fit, choose a size 15-25 cm larger than your actual chest circumference, for a relaxed fit - 10-15 cm larger. For reference: the sample in the photos is in size 3 with 24 cm positive ease.
Chest circumference: 92 (100) 108 (115) 123 (131) 139 cm
