Lopi Icelandic Wool in natural colors
What was your inspiration?
I needed a ski sweater. Icelandic wool is a wonderful chice of yarn for such a sweater,and the traditional 'Nordic' style pattern.
What are you most proud of?
This sweather has only two small seams (one under each arm approx. 1" long). The sweather is knit on circular needles from the neck/yoke down, split on to smaller round needles for each sleeve, and continued on a single circular needle for the bottom of the sweater. I love the pattern.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have some advance knowledge and experience in pattern reading and implementation.
