Notes

Didn’t have enough yarn to make it in one color - picked some color work pattern from Knits From The Heart of Norway by Irene Haugland.
Had to recalculate pretty much everything to adjust for a different gauge.
Knit flat, back and forth, bottom-up (I know, very unusual and slow way of knitting with colors). Yet, it was worth the time and effort and I am surprisingly happy with the end result. The sweater fits me extremely well.
I am not sure though if I’ll be able to wear it - not exactly my style. Will keep experimenting.
The pattern is really well written, highly recommend. I think it would look amazing in one color. Maybe one day…
Blogged here and here.
