Starmore said that she called the pattern Norskä “because it embodies several typical Norwegian qualities”, one of which is the “Flea Pattern” aka lice pattern which “is used throughout the country” and is an “excellent example of something extremely simple used to great effect.”

No meterage/yardage is stated for this yarn. Yardage based on The Girl from Auntie’s yarn converter using DK weight wool yarn.
