Bergros Kjartansdottir

for Tibra


When has Lopi ever looked this lacy and ethereal? "The coat is worked back and forth in sections to the underarm," says the pattern. "At the underarm, the sections (sleeves, fronts and back) are joined onto one needle and the yoke is worked back and forth." So much for structure. The stitch pattern is a very lovely, very easy slipped stitch one, using four rows of Lopi proper, and then a garter ridge in the Einband laceweight-- which looks lacy because you're using a 6.5mm/US10.5 needle. Directions are also included for an optional belt. According to Kjartansdottir, 'Skjaldmey' "means a strong woman in the old days." This design is from Lopi Book 32.
