Vormsi Sweater by Aleks Byrd Kit
To make navigating our website simpler, we are offering handy kits for this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this jumper along with a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
This seamless, top down jumper will take you through how to do the vikkel pattern, a technique we are eager to learn! The Vormsi Sweater is designed by one of our pals Aleks Byrd. Please be aware that this kit does not include the pattern as it is only available in Traditions Revisited: Modern Estonian Knits, a new book by Aleks and published by the folks over at Laine Magazine. You’ll be able to pick one up from their website or one of their stockists.
We have put together a few kit options for you from the delectable colours of our Yarnadelic range, have a gander and choose your favourite!

Hearing the gentle waves hitting a pebble beach is surely one of the most soothing sounds imaginable? With her new design Vormsi, named after one of Estonia’s smallest islands, Aleks Byrd takes us on a journey to the seaside. With the intricately twisted stitches, called vikkel, on the cuffs of the sleeves mimicking the waves of the Baltic sea we can almost feel the sea breeze in our hair!
