This is a yoke chart for an icelandic sweater. Either make or find instructions for an icelandic sweater and then replace the yoke chart with the one provided here. The pattern is a repeat of 16 sts. You could get the instructions f.ex. from in book Nr. 28, project nr. 3 "Riddari". The chart begins with row 16 of the joke, until then just knit up straight. This "Aegishjalmur" is an ancient magic symbol meaning: Helm of awe; to induce fear and to protect against abuse of power and all evil! PREFERRED BRAND/YARN istex lett lopi

My mother taught me how to knit when I was little... I think I knitted my first sweater when I was about 12... I used to knit under the table in school when I could get away with it...and I have not stopped knitting since:). I live, knit and spin in Iceland: I am also an architect and designer:) and I rent out holiday cottages here on my farm in Iceland.
