Vindur PDF

Designed by Laura Nelkin

Vindur means wind in Icelandic, which reflects the asymmetrical hemline and the weather in Iceland perfectly!

Vindur was inspired by a trifecta of experiences!

  • First off a trip to Iceland meant I needed a new warm sweater.
  • Then at a boring business conference at Cornell I saw the most amazing Norma Kamali sweater from the 1980s…
  • Finally I wanted to play with the construction of the Novus sweaters, but in a pullover format!

Vindur is a seamless asymmetrical sweater constructed in a simple but unusual way. First the right arm is worked from the cuff to the underarm and a short row sleeve cap is worked. Then stitches are provisionally cast on for the front and back. Then the shoulder is worked and the stitches are split for neckline shaping. The front and back are worked at the same time and rejoined to work the left shoulder. Then the front and back stitches are put on holders, and a short row sleeve cap is worked. Next, the left sleeve is worked to the wrist. Finally, the sweater is folded in half, and these two halves are joined together by a garter stitch side seam that is worked perpendicularly to them. These start at the hem and end at the cuff of the sleeve joining the front and the back of the sweater and sleeve together.
