What materials did you use? I used Lettllopi and Pltulopi for the pattern. I bought this yarn last summer at Alafoss on Iceland. This is my first topdown icelandic sweater. I have made several topdown in other yarns. Love this pattern.

What are you most proud of? That I used a new way to start.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always have a "maincolor" when knitting with two strand and keep that strand ower the other strand. That get a nice surface when it finished.
