EDIT mars 2020: separate instructions for cardigan and sweater

Gamaldags, which means Old fashion in Icelandic, is at first glance a very traditional lopi sweater. A closer look however shows a refined fit with a very feminine allure and an unusually scooped neckline. Instructions for the cardigan also include tips to make a sweater as well as a shorter version, and 3 different colorwork combinations.

Lopi and Einrum (lopi + silk) kits are for sale on icelandicknitter
