Inspired by beautiful Norwegian sweaters, designer Donna Kay created this workshop for the knitter who wants to learn the techniques needed to knit a sweater using traditional Norwegian patterns. Topics include history, garment construction, use of traditional stitch patterns, and finishing techniques. Your class project will be creating your own sweater design or starting one of Donna’s designs using Harrisville’s 64 colors!
Skill Level: Intermediate. Students should be comfortable with circular and/ or double-point needles.
Class Materials: A variety of circular and double points in sized 1 – 3 (for Shetland style fingering weight) or 5 – 7 (for Highland worsted weight), stitch markers, pen and pencil.
