Lopapeysur

Time for an update?

I finished the hoodie a while ago. Since then, I’ve been knitting a hat for a baby. I decided to make a beaded one, similar to the blue one I made for Hjalti a year ago, but with a fancy edge, since it is a baby girl. Since I  had to buy more yarn, you see, I’m trying to use up my stash, I went to the yarn shop (Storkurinn). I ended up buying not one skein, but seven! I was too tempded to buy yarn for a baby, cabled pullower which I saw there while ago and have been thinking about ever since. In order to get the pattern, one has to buy the yarn too. So of course I did;-)

I saw that I always forgot to post the finished hoodie made for my cousin, here it is
white and green lopapeysa for Arna

And Hjalti’s in white and blue shades 

white and blue hoodie for Hjaltiwhite and blue hoodie for Hjalti

Details: Approximately size 98 cm (or 86, not sure). Yarn: icelandic Létt-lopi (lopi light). Needles no. 4.5mm, 3.5 for cuffs. Pattern: A free pattern from Ístex. For this one, I used leftover lopi, I only had to buy one skein of white extra.

    Thanks for the pattern hints. I tried to make a baby overall in an Ístex pattern but a softer yarn, but it wasn’t right without proper Lopi and I never finished it. Now the kids are older and those sweaters look so good…

    These are so beautiful! I tried to get the pattern – but I’m having a difficult time trying to translate it into English. I can’t even find an Icelandic dictionary at my library!
    Anyways, they are gorgeous – if I ever can get the pattern figured out, I’ll send a link to a photo! In the meantime, if there’s an English version out there, I’d be interested in it! Thanks

  7. Kaninchen Says:

    Do you have the charting for the design on the blue sweater? It is different than on the free pattern. I really like your design.

  8. greatgramma Says:

    Where do I get the free pattern? Can’t seem to find it anywhere.

    I recommend garnstudio.com for translation. Each country has lists for its own language. If you want to find translations the other way round you need to chose the other language. Good luck!

      Would you like to tell me, this pattern is in DROPS ( garnstudio.com)?

      • Judy Says:

        Here is the translation. Not perfect but a man friend from Iceland translated (he is not a knitter). Icelandic first, then English. Sleppa means skip or omit.
