Product type

Riimu is a Finnish word, meaning a horse’s headcollar. It is a suitable name for this lovely and horsey sweater with simple motifs on the hem and sleeves and Icelandic horses tolting in the yoke. The colours are easy to mix with a few matching tones. The sweater is fitted with additional shapings in the waistline.

Riimu 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 front and back of the sweater itself are the same, so it can be worn either way.
Riimu is also available in children´s sizes, so that you can knit a matching set for the whole family.
You will have no trouble knitting with this pattern!

Wearing the Riimu sweater, 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 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.

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.
