This is fun! The Holiday Gifts 2007 issue of Interweave Knits features sweaters designed using the templates for Projects 8 and 9 from Ethnic Knitting Discovery: The Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, and The Andes, by Donna Druchunas, in both adult and kid sizes. (Project 8 is the Norwegian boatneck pullover and Project 9 is the Norwegian crewneck pullover.)
Aren’t they beautiful?
The yarn is DK-weight GGH Wollywasch (100% superwash wool) worked at a sportweight-typical 6 stitches/inch (24 stitches/10cm) for extra warmth.
There’s more on the sweaters here, along with a link to download a PDF written by Donna Druchunas (who wrote Ethnic Knitting Discovery) and Debbie O’Neill (who knitted the two sweaters on the book’s cover) about designing your own Norwegian-style sweaters. (Access to the PDF requires either sign-up or log-in for a free Knitting Daily newsletter account.)
This publication isn’t part of a regular subscription to Interweave Knits and you’ll need to look for it specially in a yarn shop or on a newsstand.
The blog tour for Ethnic Knitting Discovery continues. There’s a great diversity of hosting blogs and post topics. I’m enjoying seeing what pops up each day.
