Nigel's Norwegian Sweater
This is a traditional Norwegian colourwork sweater, made with wool bought in Tromso, on the Norwegian coast. We had taken Nigel on one of the Hurtigruten boats for his holiday, and I took photos of lots of Norwegians wearing their sweaters. When we came home, I designed this one for Nigel. It looks equally good on women!
The body is worked in the round up to the armholes. Steeks are used at the armholes and neck to continue in the round to the shoulders. The sleeves are worked in the round from the cuff up, finishing with a facing which is then sewn over the cut steek. The crew neck is worked in the round then folded to the inside to cover the neck steek.
There are 10 sizes, all with the charts centered. The pattern is writen out twice, with 5 sizes per time. The finished chest measurements are 36, 40, 44, 49, 53, 58, 62, 67, 71 and 76 ins.
This pattern was first published as Tromso in Knit magazine with numerous errors inserted after it has left me! It has now been totally re-written and re-tech edited.
