This sweater is knit in the traditional Icelandic Lopapeysa style. The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up and are then joined together to form a yoke i.e. the circular patterned area around the shoulders. The body is waisted and short rows are used at the neck to provide a comfortable fit. Léttlopi is a fantastic yarn to work with. It’s exceptionally warm and comes in a wide range of beautiful colours.
The Helsinki Sweater is a graceful yoke design with short rows and waist shaping to give a flattering fit. The body of the sweater is a deep olive green; the many oranges and subtle greens of the Turkish motif in the yoke give an overall effect of mid-century Scandinavian pottery designs: thus, the name Helsinki Sweater.
