Norwegian Sweater
This warm raglan sweater is inspired by traditional patterns found on old knitting in the valley of Setesdal, Norway.
Knitted bottom up, it breaks the tradition a little by having a seamless raglan shaping for the shoulders.

The pattern is knitted in light beige color on a dark
grey-black background.

Choose any wool yarn that fits the specified gauge.

Setesdal is a 200 km long valley in South Norway that stretches a few miles from the coast and all the way up to West-Telemark and Hardangervidda.
Setesdal has one of the richest and best kept arts and crafts traditions in Norway.

Updated english version includes short rows
- to lower the back and the front, for better fit!

PS: If you don´t like knitting short rows, simply skip this part :)
