Dagna Yoke Sweater Pattern
Dagna is a traditional, yet modern, Nordic Yoke sweater. It is named after my Aunt Dag who immigrated to the US alone when she was 12 years old. She lived with extended family in Minnesota until the rest of her immediate family arrived the next year. I once saw a photo of her skiing in early 20th century ski clothes and I designed this sweater for her. She also was famous for her raisin cake that's included in the pattern. I hope you bake it and love it!
Note that Christian Peter is a boyfriend fit version of Dagna and includes larger sizes and a deeper yoke.
