To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Vedis Jonsdottir

for Istex - Iceland   2006

26-04 Virki

Many thousands of knitters have begun their careers with Lopi yoke sweaters, and they remain instantly recognizable classics-- and they keep you toasty like nothing else. (We're Canadian, we know.) Here master Lopi designer Jonsdottir shows a beginner design in two colourways (separate instructions and charts for each, though the design is the same). For the newbie: you work the body and sleeves separately in the round, then join them all together at the underarm and finish the piece circularly. Grafting the underarms completes it. This is design 4 from Alafoss Lopi Book 26.
