Almanac - by Tin Can Knits



When in Iceland…
This yoke is my take on the Icelandic lopapeysa style that has been popular since its invention in the 1970’s.

After knitting and wearing Almanac in Iceland I see why this style remains popular. Joyful and quick to make it is hugely practical in a land of exquisite landscapes (and equally exquisite cold).
