Working on my first Lopi

VillageKnittiot's picture

So, I started a Lopi sweater out of the Lopi Magazine #31 called Jon. This is the progress so far. I've finished the body up to the level of the sleeves, now I need to cast on the sleeves, work them, then combine with the body to do the yoke.

I think Lopi have the nicest

I think Lopi have the nicest colours but the wool is to itchy for me. I even have a problem knitting with it.....such a shame. You are making great progress, I look forward to seeing the finished goods.

Very nice, Kerry. Will the border pattern compliment the yoke section?

yes. it is a bit more intricate around the yoke. It reminds me of a fresnel lens Dark to light and back to dark again. The sleeve cuffs also have the same border as the bottom.

Hi Kerry, The sweater is

Hi Kerry,
The sweater is outstanding! I just started a vest and wish now I had worked it in the round, but I am going to follow the pattern exactly. The next one though, I will do it in the round so I won't have to do seams. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Keep us posted!
