From Ravelry: Maja is a cropped yoke cardigan with a modern flair. Like in many traditional lopi sweaters, the main yoke pattern is echoed in the cuffs and at the bottom of the sweater but with unusually long motifs. The body and sleeves are knitted in the round. At the armholes, they are combined on one needle and the motif knitted. The neckline ends with a few short rows to lift the back. The cardigan is steeked, stitches are picked up along the edges and the button bands knitted. It is designed by Hélène Magnússon, an Icelandic/French designer and author.
This class is best suited for the knitter who has some experience in colorwork already. New skills to include steeking!
