Brynja is a lovely lopi sweater. It has a slightly darted waist and bust darts that give it a very feminine and flattering shape. It is not so common for traditional lopi sweaters, that are usually not that much shaped. It has exquisite details like picot edging and colored bands inside the lining. The yoke is decorated with a delicate four petal rose, a common pattern in Iceland that can be found in an old Icelandic sjónabók. It is knit entirely in the round using Létt-lopi, unspun Icelandic wool but slightly twisted, that doesn’t break so easily. Brynja comes in two versions: a short one and a long one that covers the hips.

Brynja est un charmant pull lopi avec une taille marquée et des pinces à la poitrine, pour une allure flatteuse et très féminine. C’est plutôt inhabituel pour un pull lopi qui n’est généralement pas modelé ainsi. Brynja s’orne de détails exquis comme un bord de picot et un revers en tissu imprimé. Le motif autour des épaules est une rose délicate à quatre pétales comme on peut en trouver dans les vieux sjónabók islandais. Brynja est tricoté avec la laine islandaise Létt-lopi, non filée, mais torsadée. Elle vient en deux versions: une longue et courte.
