I’ve always admired the style of Icleandic lopapeysa jumpers, and when I saw the neon colours available on the Álafoss stand at Unravel a little while back, I just knew that I had to work with it. This was the perfect opportunity! I’ve kept this as simple as possible, with only two colours worked per row. In this chunky yarn, the knitting will fly by in no time!
Construction: This jumper is worked from the bottom up in the round. The body and sleeves are first worked separately before being joined to work the yoke.
Sizing: Shown in size S on Bronte, with no ease at the bust. See schematic for finished measurements.
