Finally – Lopapeysa!

I am finally starting a Lopapeysa-inspired sweater. If you recall, I started talking about these beautiful sweaters here and here. I even ordered LettLopi yarn which is the lighter version of Icelandic Lopi yarn from Alafoss.
Now, I’m finally going to use it! My niece is going on an extended wilderness medical training program as part of her nursing studies. I’m so excited to try knitting this type of sweater!

I’m only going to use two colors and I’ve even designed a chart for the yoke. For the border, I’m gojng to use a typical zigzag pattern. Hopefully, I can knit it quick enough to send to her before she goes!
