This beanie is inspired by my honeymoon to Iceland and their knitting design. It’s called Lopapeysa, it’s their fair isle techniques.

Usually it’s worked around sweater yoke with abstract design or animals forms but for a first try I went for the tuque and a nice easy arrowed cross.

Attaviti is the islandic word for Compass.
