Description: In this workshop, we will examine the various components of a bottom-up, seamless yoke sweater. After we have recorded the body measurements required for this type of garment, we will work through all of the steps (and the math!) needed for you to leave with a personalized pattern that you can take home to create your own Icelandic lopapeysa. An assortment of yoke patterns and motif bands will be provided for you to incorporate into your design. Questions pertaining to designing yoke patterns and top-down construction methods will be considered as time permits.

Skill Level: Basic understanding of sweater construction.

Tools Needed: Homework, as well as measuring tape and calculator. Handouts will be provided.

Homework:  Homework will consist of preparing a 5" by 5" gauge swatch in stockinette stitch using either Álafosslopi or Léttlopi or similar yarn.

Materials Fee: None
