My youngest son is incredibly enamoured by trains, and thus decided that I needed to knit him a ”train sweater”. After agreeing to his request, he followed the work closely and asked how far I had gotten several times per day, and even brought me the sweater if I dared knit something else for a while.
The result of all this is Futfut - a fantastic little train sweater. It is a lightweight sweater, but warm and comfortable, and quick to knit, as only part of the sweater features stranded knitting. The graphical element with the tracks can easily carry the sweater alone, if you don’t want the train driving around the body. But for all girls and boys who love trains, this sweater is a must-have.

Min yngste søn er utrolig glad for tog, og han bestemte derfor, at jeg skulle strikke en ”tog-trøje” til ham. Efter at jeg havde indvilliget, gik han og spurgte til sin sweater flere gange om dagen og kom ofte med strikketøjet, hvis jeg tillod mig at strikke på noget andet.
Resultatet af hans ønsker blev Futfut - en fin togsweater. Sweateren er let, men lun og er også hurtig at strikke, da flerfarvestrikken kun er en lille del af sweateren. Det grafiske element med skinnerne kan sagtens stå alene, hvis man ikke ønsker at have en hel togstamme kørende rundt på maven. Men for alle togglade drenge og piger er denne sweater et must.
