Gamallegur

Gamallegur, which literally means “looking old” in Icelandic, is sort of a male version of my popular Gamaldags: fairly traditional in look but modern in shape. It has a rounded neckline and refined waist shaping for a flattering fit. It has an ingenious construction, borrowed from Old Icelandic men costumes from the 18 -19th centuries: the body is worked from the bottom up and the back higher up but the sleeves are conveniently knitted from the top down and have elbow shaping to prevent the formation of holes.

Yarn used: Léttlopi or equivalent sport/aran weight
