Fjolla comes from Albanian word fjollë - “fine snow” or “snowflake” - a perfect description for the combination of the soft and light fabric created by lace weight yarn, held double, and the delicate lace pattern floating gently down the sleeves.

Fjolla is worked seamlessly from the top down, with 2 strands of mYak Baby Yak Lace held double throughout. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. First the yoke is worked back and forth to the final neck CO. 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.
