almanac
lopi yoke

This is our take on the classic Lopapeysa Icelandic yoke style. It's sized for the whole family, and we love how it looks on a John, but love it even more oversized on Nina

After knitting and wearing Almanac in Iceland I see why this style remains popuar. Joyful and quick to make it is hugely practical in this land of exquisite landscapes (and equally exquisite cold)!
