Knit your own LOPAPEYSA DVD
Learn to knit Iceland’s favorite sweater
The Lopapeysa (Icelandic for the traditional knitted yoke sweater) has become a well-known symbol for the Icelandic knitting tradition.
Today the Lopapeysa is intensely popular among Icelanders of all ages, so when travelling around Iceland you will see this knitted symbol of the Nordic nation all over.
On the DVD Ragga takes you through the knitting of three different Lopapeysas. Freyja, a lovely ladies cardigan, Óðinn, a very traditional mens pullover and Loki, a children’s top down sweater. All of them are available as free knitting patterns for download here on the Knitting Iceland web site. You will learn the traditional techniques along with Ragga’s modern twists, from casting on to steeking (don’t be scared now…).
The DVD also includes a documentary about the making of lopi, from the sheep to the knitters’ needles.
