Hello Berroco Fan!

Ístex Lopi has a brand new pattern book out for this year, full of knitting patterns that use all of their yarns! Each pattern was designed by veteran designer Védís Jónsdóttir, who has designed many lovely Lopi patterns in the past—if you knit Afmaeli as part of our Lopi knit-along last year, that's one of Védís's patterns! 

Uppstytta by Védís Jónsdóttir, available in Lopi 38 
Upstytta is a bottom-up sweater knit with five shades of Lettlopi. It features a curved bottom hem and gathered cuffs. Two color combinations are shown in Lopi book 38 to help inspire you, or you can put your own combinations together by previewing all the shades of Lettlopi on the Istex website.
Liljulag by Védís Jónsdóttir, from Lopi 38
We're big fans of Plötulopi here! The lightweight, unspun cakes of yarn provide plenty of warmth while also being lighter than air—ideal for a child's sweater such as Liljulag!
Púls by Védís Jónsdóttir, from Lopi 38
Lopi yarns aren't just great for sweaters; they also make fabulous accessories! The Púls mittens use six shades of Einband, the laceweight Lopi yarn, with one color of Lettlopi to create a pair of warm, cozy mittens.
Hitaspá by Védís Jónsdóttir, from Lopi 38
I'm also in love with the Hitaspá blanket which uses four shades of Bulky Lopi to knit a gorgeous blanket! The colorwork chart is knit in the round and then steeked open, but because it's super bulky yarn, you'll be able to easily see the stitches to make sure they're reinforced before cutting, making this an ideal practice project for steeking.
Köttur by Védís Jónsdóttir, from Lopi 38
Lopi garments are known for their bright colorwork patterns, but this yarn makes beautiful solid color sweaters too! In Köttur, Alafosslopi makes a sweet pullover with slightly puffed sleeves--the best part is that this is knit on US size 15 and 17 needles, so the fabric will be airy and knit up quickly!

Lopi book 38 is currently only available in print at your local Lopi yarn stores—you can use our store locator to find the nearest Lopi retailer near you and ask if they have the book, along with the Lopi yarns, in stock. (PDF patterns will be available in the future.) Follow along with all the great news from Lopi on their English language Facebook page or their brand new Instagram account!
