The Swedish North Halland Pullover, 6 hours
The lovely Swedish red and black man's pullover sweater from the Halland region can be dated back to the late 1800's. In this class, a sampler will be knitted circularly compiling a variety of Swedish construction techniques: the traditional twisted cast-on and patterned ribbing, seam stitches, the Diamonds and Crosshatching motif, an initial box, and centering shoulder motifs. Working with a yarn in each hand, and purling with 2 yarns in the back of the work will also be covered.
• 2 oz. worsted weight yarn (preferably wool) EACH in red and black.
• One set 7"/20 cm long (or shorter) double pointed needles EACH, sizes 3.75 and 4.5 mm.
• St markers, st holders, scissors, tapestry needle, waste yarn, size D crochet hook, and sticky notes or magnetic board to keep your place on the chart.
