Notes

Using a lot of the yarn I brought back from Iceland this summer :)

Changes:

1) Same colours as the original pattern except for the main grey, which is a bit darker (0056)

2) Started off with size 2 but since I rarely swatch I realized after finishing the ribbing that it was going to be too large for me, so decreased and increased until I got the right number of stitches for size 1.

3) Since I don’t like very high necklines I left off the last 4 rows of the yoke chart

ETA: The Lopi softened considerably after a good soak with hair conditioner
