Traveling to Norway was never on my bucket list until I started knitting. Now I can’t get it out of my mind. Fjords, mountains and the midnight sun are certainly attractions, but what draws me the most is their traditional stranded colorwork. Fanciful animals, interesting geometric shapes and gorgeous flora and fauna are all represented in their colorful mittens and sweaters.

This cowl, worked in the round with a provisional cast on and joined with Kitchener in the round, is a sampler of many of these images. This pattern uses eight beautiful colors of fingering weight yarn. Choose your own, or order the kit from
