Thursday Night Knitters: Knit a Lopi Style Sweater. 6 Sessions

Thursday Night Knitters:  Knit a Lopi style Sweater.  With Mary Crosby.  6 Sessions:  January 24, February 7, February 21, March 7, March 28, April 4, 2019.  $125.00.  $50.00 deposit holds your space. 

Learn how to make a colorful Icelandic sweater, using worsted weight wool or wool blends.  Strokkur by Ysolda Teague is the pattern we will be using (or if you have a favorite pattern, you can do that instead).  Her sweater was inspired by traditional Icelandic Lopapeysas: cozy sweaters with colourful yoke patterns.

Strokkur features a more refined fit than many traditional yoked sweaters. It is worked from the bottom up with gentle waist shaping.   You will learn how to choose colors, how to do short rows, how to join body/sleeves in the round, and color dominance.

Beginners welcome; you must know how to knit and purl, and work in the round.  You will learn different ways to work in the round- double points or magic loop.
