Sweetheart is an Icelandic lopapeysa for all the loving ­lovely people out there! It features a number of stylized hearts with a classic Nordic seamless construction. The pattern was ­originally adapted to two different types of wool yarn - the yarn from the ­Swedish minimill Solkustens Spinnverkstad, as well as the Icelandic lopi yarn. The sample sweater was knit in the Swedish yarn and a size C but the pattern is now ­written for Icelandic létt-lopi. The pattern has been updated with more ­inclusive sizing.

This sweater is knitted seamlessly in the round. Pattern and decreases are worked from chart. The round begins and ends at the back of the left side shoulder. When one skein ends, don’t tie the new skein on – join ends by felting them ­together. This will give you less ends to weave in, plus a nicer ­looking garment. Make sure to adapt sleeve and body length by ­measuring the intended wearer and lengthen/shorten the parts accordingly.

12 sizes range from 80 to 166 cm (31.5-65.5”) around the chest.
