Lopapeysa DVD – the last steps
In March we did most of the shooting for my new Lopi sweater knitting DVD, at my great grandmother’s house up in the North of Iceland (in the tiny village Hofsós). Sooo many good things have happened since then – but finally the last steps of the production are being taken.
Here’s the basic info about what you’ll get:
- A little documentary about the making of lopi – from the sheep to the skein
- A short history of the Lopapeysa
- Lot’s of Icelanders happily going around wearing their Lopapeysa’s
- Instructional part where I take you through the knitting of 3 different Lopapeysa’s (including the dreaded steeking part)
The three patterns are: a classic mans sweater (picture above), the Freyja cardigan and a top-down children’s sweater. All patterns will be made available on the Knitting Iceland site as free downloads.
The language selection includes Icelandic and English.
