Kristín is part of a collection of sweaters of similar facture made by Margrét under the name “The Settlement Daughters & Sons”. The beautiful motif in the yoke can be found in an Old Icelandic pattern manuscript, known as Sjónabók.
The printed pattern is accompanied by notes from myself: they are meant to clarify some points that were unclear and I also asked Margrét to add two sizes to the pattern. The notes come in the form of a PDF and don’t include the charts that are in the printed pattern.
It also includes a letter to the knitter and a leather Móakot tag to sew on you finished cardigan.
On my website, you will find helpful tutorials illustrating some techniques used in this pattern, such as the steek.
Margrét Halldórdottir is an Icelandic designer of sweaters under the name Móakot. When she’s not designing, she’s a psychologist.
