The first project of 2010 is a traditional icelandic sweater for my friend Rocky. I have both of the sleeves done. Hint if you don’t like knitting sleeves: Knit the second one first, it helps ;)
Pattern: Frost by Védís Jónsdóttir, from Lopi 29
Yarn: Álafoss Lopi
Needles: 4.5 mm. and 6.0 mm.
NB! There is an error in the pattern for the sleeves for the size small. It says CO 34 sts, knit 4 cm. of rib and then add 2 sts. Then you have total of 36 sts but the fair isle pattern requires number of sts you can divide with 8. So I casted on like it says for the size medium and adjusted the number of sts along the way. I ended up with 48 sts as told in the pattern.
Based on the sleeves, the sweater should be spectacular. As someone struggling through her first sweater, I can’t even imagine doing a sweater with more than one color!
Thanks for visiting my blog, so that I found yours!
