NINA GRANLUND Sæther has studied traditional Norwegian folk patterns, and explains the history behind this design: “From Surnadal in Nordmøre and Gaular in Sogn and Fjordane, we recognize a pattern that’s constructed like stones in a wall. The elements of the pattern are arranged in bands; on every other row, the ‘stones’ are shifted so there are no stacked vertical joints. This pattern appears on mittens in Surnadal and Gaular. The University Museum in Bergen also has a pair of stockings with exactly the same pattern. It’s a pair from Sunnfjord, knitted in red and black homespun wool.”

PATTERN NOTES
Use 2.5mm needles for working size S, and 3mm needles for working size M.
