This pattern is available for €6.00 EUR buy it now


This crochet sweater is the adult version of the Fair Isle Cardigan for KIDS, inspired by the traditional, Norwegian stranded knitting-patterns.
Being Norwegian, I’ve learned to appreciate them as part of my cultural inheritance.
These sweaters were knitted in the wool’s natural shades. Fancy color combinations, like my red and white, have been used only the last 5 decennial or so.
The body is created as the traditional sweaters; Straight like a tube, no shaping.
Originally the sweaters are worked on the round, and steeked for open front. We’ll work it forth and back, no steeking!
Note that the pattern on the sweater 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.

Once you’ve got the hang of the pattern, the sweater
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

Note that I’ve designed SOCKS in this same pattern, Norwegian tall Socks.
