So what exactly is this design of mine? I'm so glad you asked! The Thyri Pullover (pronounced "TIR-ee" like the pretty character on Vikings...because Amy Palmer is awesome) is a top-down pullover with long sleeves with thumb holes -- so you can pull the cuffs over your hands if you'd like, to keep them warm during those long Swedish winters.
Thyri is part of the Scandinavian story (being of Scandinavian ancestry myself, I could not be more proud that my design was even selected, let alone the cover). I wanted to make this a super easy sweater, easy enough for beginners, so instead of placing colorwork patterns in the circular yoke, I simply added some reverse Stockinette stitch bands. So there's some interest up there, but it's very simple to execute.
And those thumb holes. I love a cuff with a thumb hole. (But they're easily left off if you don't.)
You can see more about Thyri on Ravelry here, and see the rest of the patterns in this fantastic issue here.
