Fjolla is worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeve method. First the yoke is worked back and forth to the final neck cast on. When the neck shaping is complete, the yoke is worked in rounds to sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cast on. Then the body is worked in rounds to the ribbing. The sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeve in rounds, top down, to the cuffs. Neck finishing is worked last.
