Knitting Tips and Techniques • Educational, G, 01-Nov-2017
Lopis are always worked in the round, so you will need circular needles, plus double-pointed needles for the sleeves. If you are comfortable using the Magic Loop technique you won’t need the DPNs.
The colourwork sections are worked using the stranded technique. When working a colourwork round, strand the colour you’re not using loosely across the wrong side of the work. However, unlike Fair Isle designs, which only use two colours in a round, lopis often use three colours per round, as is the case in this garment.
