FLUGELDAR

This unisex sweater starts with a neutral shade that forms the background for an explosion of bright contrasting colors, a salute to a true Icelandic Flugeldar.
Flugeldar or fireworks burst around the yoke, while shaping and construction stay true (well mostly true, if you don’t count the back short row shaping!) to traditional Icelandic lopapeysas that are popular worldwide today.
