Inspired by the traditional Islender wool sweater from Devold I borrowed from my dad in my teens. Based on the original ankle sock Happy Feet. This version is knitted in the same yarn as the original and has the classic “Islender” finish around the ankles. I’m definitely bringing these with me to our mountain cabin.
