***************

LOFOTEN Lopapeysa, despite its Icelandic style, is named after the Norwegian Lofoten Islands, which are world famous for their codfish. Body and sleeves are worked in the round from lower edge to underarms, then joined to work yoke in the round. Round begins at left side of body. On yoke, round begins on the left side of back at the joining of body and sleeve. For knitting the sleeves, I recommend using the ‘magic loop’ technique, which helps you to avoid bunching up when enlarging and working on pattern, and also saves your time.
In the pattern you will find a table of sizes, basic measurements and calculations. This will make it easier for you to guide yourself when working on your sweater. The table is versatile and can be used to work on any lopapeysa. Almost all measurements are given in US and metric.


The LOFOTEN Lopapeysa knitting pattern comes as a PDF with written instructions, charts and photos which you can download immediately after the payment. It prints onto A4 or US Letter paper. You will need a soft such as Adobe Reader to access it (free software, see adobe.com).
Furthermore full pattern support is available by email.
