The Lopapeysa Sweater, by Toni Carr & Kyle Cassidy, takes us on a journey through Iceland with a focus on the timeless treasure of lopapeysa sweaters. Lopapeysa sweaters are handknit Icelandic sweaters deeply rooted in Icelandic culture and history.
In this book, authors Toni (also known as Joan of Dark) and Kyle travel the 800 miles of Iceland's Ring Road. By interviewing local experts and digging through archives, they provide us with a deep understanding of the history and legacy of the Icelandic sweaters. Included in the book are 12 new, original, lopi-syle patterns ranging in difficulty so knitters can work their way through these patterns and honor the lopapeysa's rich history.
