Lopi is the uniquely lightweight yarn spun in Iceland from the long-coated Icelandic sheep. Generations of knitters have enjoyed the ease of knitting sweaters in this bulky, quick-knitting yarn. Through the years Reynolds/JCA has produced classic and innovative patterns using Lopi and Lopi Lite, a lighter-weight version of the yarn. The Best of Lopi presents a wide range of the most popular and timely of these designs: pullovers, cardigans, jackets, and accessories for men, women, and children. Many use the dramatic color patterns that Icelandic knitting is noted for, others depend on the beauty of the yarn in simple stitchwork. The special flavor of this active-wear is captured in photographs against a backdrop of the island's windswept, glacier-capped, volcanic landscape. AUDIENCE: Those who already knit with Lopi will enjoy the convenience of a collection of the best patterns. Those who love to learn about knitting traditions will savor the Icelandic one. Those who have not yet knit an Icelandic sweater will find the technical help they need.
