About

Love to knit

More than 20 years ago my mother taught me to knit. Since then I have always knitted on and off. But in the last few years I have been unstoppable and I found myself stuck with a pile of beautiful garments just waiting for someone to wear them.
That's when I decided to try Etsy.

I tend to knit what I'm in the mood for. I go and pick the colors that stand out and pair them with the perfect pattern and base color. Then I just knit away.

I like to combine the more traditional Lopi sweater patterns with vivid colors. In my opinion that really showcases how beautiful many of the patterns really are. It also makes them a little more fun.

I also love traditions and my Icelandic heritage. The Icelandic wool is so unique and has such wonderful qualities that I can't help loving it. Combined with the traditional Lopi sweaters it's just perfect.

For me every item I make is unique. I seldom do two things exactly alike and I love to receive comment and requests for custom items.

    I am a mother of four and I manage a hotel in the most beautiful countryside of Iceland. I use most of my free time for running and knitting. My favorite projects to knit are traditional Lopi sweaters and lace shawls. My least favorite is socks.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

All Lopi garments should be hand washed in lukewarm water using a mild soap or shampoo. Adding hair conditioner to the last rinse will help soften the wool.

Do you make any sweaters for men?

Yes I do. Just send me a custom order request and we'll work out the details.
