The Karri neck warmer from Lopi Book #26 is knit using Lopi wool yarn. The original design calls for "Plotulopi" and information about substitions can be found in the Notes section below. Yarn kits for this design are described below.
- The pattern in the book calls for an unspun Icelandic wool called "Plotulopi", not available outside Iceland, which is sold by weight as a one-ply, flat round roll, called a "plate". It is knit using a loose tension with one, two or three plys at a time, depending on how bulky a yarn the knitter wants. This design calls for 2-ply "Plotulopi" and the book recommends substituting Lopi so our yarn kits include the equivalent weight of this yarn. The knitter can do a test swatch and compare it to the gauge information in the book.
- If you would like to order the kit with alternative colours, please specify these in the comment field of your order form.
