Fika (fee-ka) is the first pattern in the Hygge - Knit the Things You Love to Wear collection. This pattern will be released on August 31, 2015.
The large triangular shawl is named after the Swedish “fika” custom - you take a moment out of your busy life to slow down over a cup of coffee and spend some time catching your breath. You can fika by yourself, but it’s even better with friends (and baked goods).
The Fika shawl features an all-over leaf motif and a deep moss stitch border. Aimed at intermediate knitters, the shawl is both charted and knitted. It is worked in a rustic Nordic yarn and the sizing is easy to modify.
The Hygge - Knit the Things You Love to Wear collection celebrates a truly Scandinavian concept.that means “a feeling of comfort, cosiness, and happiness”. The collection contains five small projects all relating to aspects of hygge – from spending time with good friends to drinking a mug of hot chocolate after a long, cold day. The knitting patterns are all small accessories that use between one and two skeins of Nordic yarns.
