NORWEGIAN STYLE CROCHET SWEATER, A HEIRLOOM!

This crochet sweater is the adult version of the Fair Isle Cardigan for KIDS, inspired by the traditional, Norwegian stranded knitting-patterns.

  • Being Norwegian, these patterns are part of my cultural inheritance. Traditional Norwegian sweaters were knitted in the wool’s natural shades. Fancy color combinations, like my red and white, have been used only the last 5 decennials or so.
  • The body is created as the traditional sweaters; Straight like a tube, no shaping. Originally the sweaters are worked in the round, and steeked for open front. We’ll work it forth and back, no steeking!
  • Note that the pattern on this cardigan is not stranded (worked with 2 strands on the same row)! It’s a simple 2-row pattern-repeat. In addition to some sc-stripes.

The cardigan works up real fast. In no-time, compared to a knitted sweater with stranded pattern!

If you wonder how the pattern would look in other color combinations, see the Sweater Clog-Slippers HERE
