Oliver’s trøje is a round yoke sweater worked from the top down with the possibility to adjust the length of the sleeves and the body. See all the measurements before you decide a size.
The work starts with rib at the neck and afterward short rows for a lowered neckline at the front. The increases create a rounded yoke. After finishing the yoke, the sleeves are separated on waste yarn, and the body is worked from the armholes to hem and then a rib is worked before binding off. The sleeves are worked one at a time by putting the stitches back from waste yarn to the working needles and worked in rounds with decreases to the cuffs. The cuffs are worked in rib before binding off.
