I´m naming this sweater after a majestic mountain top in the Norwegian mountain range of Jotunheimen. Store Ringstind is 2124 meters high, and I´ve been there on Telemark-skis! It was fabulous!!
The sweater is knitted in Utiku, a New Zealand DK Corriedale +some fingering Blackhill Højlandsuld held double to match the DK. I designed a star pattern to go with the raglan increases, and did tons of calculating to get it right.
8th of feb.: Finished! Think it needs a bit more length and a bit more width…. I did some decreases along the body, 10 st(s) in total. I think I´ll go with only 4. Got a bit more yarn, so it should be possible, but I hate ripping up a finished piece……. Also the arms, which I thought were intentionally too long, turned out be just long enough……
9th of feb.: Ripped almost all the length of the body:(
23rd of feb.: Finished!!
6th of apr.: Love this sweater!! I´ve been wearing it almost every day since finishing it, and had to fish it out of the washing-basket to photograph it:)
I´ve blogged about it here.
