Product type

sweater got its name on a trip to Akureyri in Northern Iceland. The local yarn shop did not have enough of the main colour, so I had to make a pattern to suit the available yarns.
This pattern is unbeatable outdoors; the wool fabric keeps you warm in any kind of weather. Akureyri is a garment for any outdoors activity!  
Akureyri is quick to knit. As with many Icelandic sweaters, the sleeves are knitted first, followed by the body, and the yoke comes last, combining everything into a completed garment. You will have no trouble knitting Akureyri with this pattern!


Istex Álafosslopi 100g/100 m Álafosslopi yarn can also be replaced by Plötulopi 100g/300m double. 80 cm circular needles 7 mm or depending on the handiwork, 4.5 mm double pointed needles. More detailed materials can be found in the attached pictures.

Note the density of the instructions is 13 s / 10 cm, ensure the handwriting by knitting closed stockinette stitch. Note Be careful with the knitting density, because the difference of even a couple of stitches affects not only the width of the work but also e.g. to the height of the yoke!
