Dalala sweater

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Dalalæða Link to website or photo lopiogband.is What are you most proud of? The fit, it fits perfectly, I mixed together 2 sizes to make it perfect for me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check that the sleeves will be long enough, the recipe made them extremely short, but I added length where the single color is in the pattern and I think I got away with it without "disturbing" the pattern too much.

What you will need

  • lafoss pltulopi: unspun icelandic wool.

Q&A with Cutiemouse

hoekstra.1098703 asked:
where can I buy this pattern? I really love it!
Cutiemouse answered:
It's in a magazine called "Lopi og Band 1. tbl. 2011", it's only in Icelandic so far as I know, and I haven't found any shop that ships the magazine outside of Iceland either. :S
Kwilneff asked:
What a beautiful sweater! The patterns are unusual and look awesome in the colours you have used. Was the yarn made in Iceland?
Cutiemouse answered:
Yes, it's Icelandic unspun plate wool used double, and sometimes with 2 different colors to make the gradient effect. :)
