Norwegian sweater – knitting project plus add-on

Norwegian sweater pattern

I just wanted to show you my latest knitting project. A Norwegian sweater knitted with Fair Isle technique.

It was the first time I used this technique and in retrospect it sounds more complicated than it really is. I was surprised that I finished this sweater that fast (It took me only 4 weeks).

I always purchase one extra ball of each color just to be on the safe side, so had some wool left over and knitted a matching bonnet (the add-on) with the same pattern.

You can get the instructions for free from DROPS Design (drops design model no. 122-2), where you can find the patterns for the matching bonnet, gloves and collar too. You can directly purchase the needed wool on site at Lanade. I ordered exactly the wool and color used in the model, red, grey, and white.

 

So I am ready for winter but let’s hope the summer stays a while longer.

Hey! Sharing's great for your karma ;)
