Permafrost sweater is worked bottom up with double thread Pillpi + 1 thread Lamull. A warm and thick sweater with a wide and rather short fit. The sleeves reach straight down over the wrist and are rather wide before the folded cuffs, which then fit tightly over the arm. The neckline is higher and folded double. Although Permafrost sweater is particularly warm, it is fluffy and not too tight on the body.
«Witre Design. En strikkers år»
This instruction has first been published in my book «En strikkers år», published by Cappelen Damm in February 2020. Once week after its publication, the book landed in 2nd place on the bestseller list for “general literature”. The book contains 30 instructions translated into Norwegian, Danish, German and Finnish.
The pictured model is worked in Rauma Pillpi SFN21 and Rauma Lamull L52.
It may be difficult to find Rauma Pillpi. For this reason, yarn alternatives that have been recommended to me by other knitters can be found below. As I have never knitted with these alternatives myself, I am unfortunately unable to give exact information on quantities. Nevertheless, I hope that the information will help.:
Isager Spinni, 1 thread mohair + Bouclé by Mohair by Canard. Drops Alpaca Bouclé + Finull. Drops Alpaca Bouclé + Drops Alpaca mix. Drops Alpaca Bouclé + Drops Baby alpaca silk. Drops Alpaca Bouclé + Rauma Lamull.
Choose a size that is approx. 20-25 cm wider (positive ease) than your chest circumference. The chest circumference is measured across the chest, right below the armhole opening. The stated measurements on the front page are for the finished garment.
