Dan's Icelandic

Dan's Icelandic

This is a Lopi pattern, knit in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride. I knit it circularly, with center front steeks. I knit a facing along with knitting the front bands, which hid the steek cuts on the inside. This band turned out the best of any cardigan band I had done to date - instead of following the pattern instructions for pick up rate, I picked up at a rate that took into consideration my row gauge in ribbing vs. my row gauge in the stockinette of the body of the sweater. Even if my son was too cool to wear my sweaters by this age, this was a triumph for me in my knitting skill.
