Chunikku a new knitting pattern

I knitted this little tunic about one and a half year ago for my daughter Rúna. It’s made from the luxurious un-spun lopi from the women’s collective Þingborg in the South of Iceland. They make this lovely stuff from selected lamb’s wool, all the colors available are the ones that naturally occur in the Icelandic sheep. Since this wool is not readily available outside of Iceland (if anywhere) I suggest you use what you have… just make sure the gauge is similar. It’s a simple knit but has some interesting little details that make it a fun project. Chunikku was in fact just published by the Icelandic subscribers club, Saumaklúbburinn, but only in Icelandic. So here it comes in English, available for free through my Ravelry store. Enjoy!
