Fimmvörðuháls

The sweater and its cardigan version, with the colors of ashes, is named after Fimmvörðuháls, a mountain pass in Iceland at the site of the now-famous eruption of glacier Eyjafjallajökull in 2010. Hélène Magnusson knitted the sweater while walking this pass, in one of her Knitting Treks in the summer of 2011. It is typical of an Icelandic lopi yoke sweater, but also seek inspiration in the Old costume jackets (close-fitted shaping and unusual elbow shaping) and the Icelandic lace shawl tradition: the color work in the yoke is faked with a typical undulating lace pattern and the crocheted chain bind-off adds a feminine touch.

Yarn used: Léttlopi by ístex
