This sweater is knit in the traditional Icelandic Lopapeysa style. The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up and are then joined together to form a yoke i.e. the circular patterned area around the shoulders. The body is waisted and short rows are used at the neck to provide a comfortable fit. Léttlopi is a fantastic yarn to work with. It’s exceptionally warm and comes in a wide range of beautiful colours.
From knit.love.wool "Upside down Riddari. Designed by my lopi knitting hero, Védís Jónsdóttir. (Does anyone know if Védís has an IG account?) I think there's something about this particular yoke design that looks so good when inverted.. "
