Looking for the perfect relaxed sweater to fit into your wardrobe? The Fjord Pullover is it. A boxy shape and split hem give this sweater a modern shape. Raised Bar stitch on the hem, sleeve cuffs, and neckline adds interest to this otherwise simple design. The best part? This garment is so easy to work up! Knit in soft, self-patterning Nordic Tapestry, all you need to do is focus on the knitting.

Nordic Tapestry is a yarn featuring self-pattern print. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible, when casting on for the sleeves and front, be sure to visually match the point in the color change in the yarn at which you began for each sleeve and where you broke yarn for the front. This may require you to wind off some yarn. We promise the results are worth the effort!
