Product type


Galdur is pure magic! It has horses playing in a wintery forest and snow floating all around. Galdur is the ”must have” for every horse loving and even non-horse loving person.
Galdur is quick to knit. As with many Icelandic sweaters, the sleeves are knitted first, followed by the body, and the yoke comes last, combining everything into a completed garment. The fit is with no-ease, and also the hood is shaped to be a bit like a head-hugging cap. Galdur has a shaped waist, so it looks feminine on you but if you leave the shaping out, it suits men just as well!
You can also make the pattern with or without a hood.
The wool of Icelandic sheep has adapted to the harsh conditions of the northern island country and is characterised by its ability to withstand wind and moisture. In Iceland, garments made of this wool are used both indoors and outdoors, depending on their thickness. Wearing the Galdur hoodie, you can go out in temperatures below zero or in a drizzle, especially once you have made the fabric ”bloom” with finishing touches and wear.
The best Finnish alternative to Icelandic wool is perhaps the wool of Åland sheep. If the wool’s properties in outdoor activities are not essential to your dress, you can replace the wool of Icelandic sheep with any local alternative you like. Always ensure your gauge matches the pattern by knitting a swatch.
Wishing you enjoyable knitting,

Istex Léttlopi 50g/100m and 80cm circular needles and double point needles 4.5mm or by your gauge. More detailed materials can be found in the following images. 

NOTE. the gauge of the instruction is 20 s / 10 cm, ensure the your needle sizes by knitting a swatch. Be careful with the knitting density, as the difference between a couple of stitches affects not only the width of the work, but also the height of the yoke, for example!
