15+/- yrs back I made a sweater for my son (lvg in Alaska) a Lopi sweater that he said was the warmest he ever had. That one was burnt up in a fire. Sweater 2nd time was stolen and Sweater #3 got to the point of the back being done. Unfortunately, my pattern book was inadvertently tossed in the recyclables and even a plea to Reynolds has come up with zip. Does anyone have an old Reynolds Lopi pattern book that might contain this particular pattern. All I can recall about the book itself is that it had patterns for men and women. The sweater shown on the male model (female shown with him)was made with an off-white background with a contrasting black color (I think!). HELP?

I have many old and many new Lopi books...and they all appear just like you describe. Perhaps you should take a trip to your local yarn shop and look through the Lopi books; you might find what you're looking for. In addition, there is a book called "The Best of Lopi"; the pattern you seek might be in there.

I've had some luck finding specific pattern books on eBay. You could do an advanced search for Lopi pattern or Lopi sweater and check off the box that says, "Search title and description". I wouldn't get too specific with the search words; you may have to sift through a lot of items but it would be worth it if you find what you're looking for. Even if you don't find it right away, you can add it to your favorite searches and check back periodically.

I have a Reynolds Icelandic Pattern book volume 72. It has a man and women on the front. It sounds like this might be what you are looking for. I would be happy to make a copy of it and send it to you. Mrs. Nancy Gibson. Email me at nancygibson33@bellsouth.net]
