Icelandic

Hey, I remembered. Here's the promised picture of the 31 year old Icelandic sweater. I can still remember sitting in the laundromat, perched on the washer waiting for a load to finish and knitting this sweater. It's a shame I never really got to enjoy it. I wish I still had the pattern so that I could make another one in a more skin friendly yarn in a size that actually fits me.

It's wonderful! You could probably come pretty close using the Elizabeth Zimmerman percentage system and some of your own patterning for the yoke. Might be fun.....

Wow! That is such a great sweater!

I bet anne is right about the E.Z. system.

Oh to regain that fearlessness of the new knitter! Back before they told us it was supposed to be difficult and boring. This sweater is a monument to the true spirit of making.

That sweater is beautiful! A color-worked yoked sweater is on my list of things to do before I die. I just LOVE the way they look!
