Two favourite sweaters of mine: “Skagen” in two different colour schemes. Design by Sandnes Garn (TEMA 51 NORSKE IKONER) and yarn Sandnes SMART, 100% wool, gauge 22 st/10 cm.

I liked the pattern so much that I made two for my grandsons, too, who are 3 and 5 respectively. Pattern and design also by Sandnes Garn (TEMA 59 NORSKE IKONER TIL VOKSNE OG BARN) and this time I used Sandnes SISU as yarn, which is a lot thinner: gauge 26-28st/10 cm.

Vague plans to do a third one in the future in different colours: coal grey, light grey and bright red. We’ll see how that goes, there are so many other patterns I have in mind, as well. The one drawback with the pattern is that there are so many threads to weave in afterwards… And that’s the part of knitting I like the least!
