Although the Scandinavian method of stranded color knitting is often referred to as “Norwegian,” there are no traditional Norse motifs in this book. This design is my version of a “Norwegian” sweater. It was inspired by a challenge issued to me by my husband: “I want a sweater called ‘Norwegian Blue.’” He didn’t give any other guidelines, but I knew immediately that he was referring to his favorite comedy sketch of all time. I found the parrot motif in an old filed crochet chart. The inspiration around the shoulders translates to “Pining for the Fjords.”
