Peace Sweater is Finished

Finished Dale Peace inspired sweater

Finished Norwegian style sweater for my daughter

I actually call this thing the Pauper Sweater. It’s not exactly like Dale of Norway’s Peace sweater, but it’s close, and it’s what we can afford. The construction is designed for hand knitting. Dale’s sweater is a machine made ready-to-wear; out of necessity, the pieces must be machined flat. The hand knitted version is worked in the round, seamlessly except across the tops of the shoulders, and to join the sleeves to the bodice. There are minor variations done on the motifs, and the placket detail is hand embroidered in place of machine embroidered ribbon. The recipient loves it.

Pattern is here: Pauper Sweater
