This pattern is inspired by the an old Icelandic stave Vegvísir, was intended to help protect you and help finding a way through rough weather. I thought that would be a perfect fit for an Icelandic wool sweater.

The sweater is knitted from the bottom up in the round. A few of my test knitters did however knit their sweaters from top to bottom. As the pattern is easy to follow, you can simply start at the neck and follow it down if you prefer to knit top to bottom.

10x10cm = 18 sts and 26 rows on 5mm needles.

Circular needles: 4mm and 5mm, 40 and 60/80 cm (depending on your size)

Double-pointed needles: 4mm and 5mm

NOTE: I knit quite tightly so you may need to use 4,5mm or even 4mm I recommend knitting a swatch to test the tension.

This pattern has slim fit and a shorter body length, if you prefer a wider fit you should consider sizing up and/or adding a few cm in the body.

I also want to mention that if this pattern does not have your size, please feel free to contact me and I’ll help you grade the right size for you.
