Norwegian Knitting

JeanetteR | Posted in Knitting and Crochet on

June,

How is your new knitting project coming along?  The yarn sounds lovely.  Mine’s on hold as I’m reconsidering which pattern to use …..is dithering a real Pisces thing or something?  Went to a stitches and craft show yesterday, and there seems to be a real revival of knitting with far more interesting wools available now.  Couldn’t find an archive with that Jaeger 4-ply Norwegian pattern to send you a web-link, wasted a lot of time on Google again trying, though! 

A lady from the NSW Knitters’ Guild referred me to a book of N. Knitting patterns, after remarking on her 8-ply (DK, double Knitting) one she was wearing, and where to get it.  You know I was considering though, a library book with cross-stitch ‘geometric-type’ patterns might be the go, then just centreing each and working out the number of repeats, using a plain 4-ply pattern for the shaping and number of stitches etc, hey may have hit on something!
