PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Strokkur was inspired by traditional Icelandic Lopapeysas: cozy sweaters with colourful yoke patterns. First made for a trip to Iceland a few years ago, the original has travelled with me ever since. Knit in Icelandic wool it’s been my ‘go to’ garment for chilly, damp days. Another trip to Iceland, and the fact that the original sweater was looking rather well loved, meant it was time to make a replacement. This time I actually took notes, so now you can knit one of your own.

Strokkur features a more refined fit than many traditional yoked sweaters. It is worked from the bottom up with gentle waist shaping. The yoke patterning is fairly short; to flatteringly frame the face and avoid bagginess around the underarm. Short rows are worked both above and below the stranded colourwork to create a scooped neckline. Shown in size 35½” with one inch of positive ease.
