About pattern
The name comes from a small village in Norway called Spydeberg. This sweater is inspired by the villages symbol of spears. The English word for “spyd” is spear and “berg” is mount.

The sweater is knitted bottom up, and with yoke. It is used ribbing for edges. The fit is meant to be loose. The suggested length for the body in the female pattern gives a shorter look. If you prefer a longer look add length. Just remember that you may need extra yarn for a longer version.
