Norwegian Sweater Becoming a Reality!

April 1, 2015
Incomplete but wearable

Unfinished but wearable garment.

I’ve made a lot of progress, and actually have a garment that can be put on. Am currently working a sleeve, the beginnings of which are on the model’s wrist. She is the future recipient of the sweater, and it’s fitting her well. She’s pleased. We both are.

The cuff looks rumpled because the facing is not yet tacked down. The slit needs a button; the placket needs a clasp.

I’ve contacted Dale to inquire about permissions pertaining to publishing, but it’s not looking like they will respond. If not, I’ll create a stranded design of my own and publish the construction method with it. The construction is mine; I’ve no idea what Dale has done to achieve their garment shape. It’s a machined ready-to-wear. My garment is strictly a hand knitted construction, and the construction is working out very well.

As for the construction method, it can be used in conjunction with any stranded motif design.
