Lopapeysa in Progress

Odinn (3)
I have started my journey with the Lopapeysa mode.  It is the Icelandic way of knitting or rather making fabric.  I feel a hat coming on with a crochet touch, very soon , very soon. The yarn is Encore Chunky, so is 80% acrylic and 20 % wool, perfect for the San Francisco weather.

This is a top down sweater and a very interesting fellow, Odinn is designed by Ragga or properly know as Ragnheidur Eiriksdottir .  I am also taking a class by her on on making a top down cardigan.  I decided to try a sweater by her as well.  I have a peculiar body shape, I am short and stocky, so I can normally make things for small -short people, but my chest is definitely a medium size.  So in my sweater journey, I am using the short person version of ROWS with the Medium Person stitch count , lol.  It will work.  At this moment, I am ready to put the sleeves on separate needles or waste yarns and continue knitting the body of the sweater.  More pictures to come.  Thanks for stopping by.
