I’m so pleased to have finished this Lopi for my eldest boy, just in time for the Autumn weather.

Pattern: Frost by Védís Jónsdóttir

Yarn: Ístex Álafoss Lopi bought from Meadow Yarn

Colours: MC: 1233 Space Blue CC: 1232 Arctic Exposure CC: 9959 Indigo

Size: Smallest, with 5cm added in length.

Ravelry page here

Mods:  Intentional – I added six short rows across the shoulders in the MC sections as soon as I added the sleeves. I added 5cm in length in the body and 3cm in length in the hood.

Unitentional: I got the colours mixed up on the yoke – ho hum ;o)

 

This is the second time that I’ve knitted this pattern, and just like the first time, I found this an easy and enjoyable project. My hands really aren’t used to knitting such heavy wool on such large needles,so I did find that I didn’t want to work on it for more than an hour or so at a time, but it still went very quickly.

This is the first time I’ve knitted the hood on this and I’ve not  blocked the hood very well the first time, but that’s easily sorted. Georgie Hallam posted a great way to block hoods using a cycle helmet on her Instagram feed the other day, we seem overrun with the things so I think that I’ll give that a go. I’ve still to knit a long I-cord for the hood, that may be a while until I do because long I-cord – ugh!!!

Anyway, so more gratuitous pictures ;o)
