Opposite the original Icelandic sweaters this sweater is worked Top-Down, beginning at the top with increases down the patterned yoke.

The advantages of top-down construction are: no seams as all the parts are worked together, the length of yoke, body and sleeves can be adjusted to desired lengths as the sweater can be tried on during the knitting.
