Official Photo Shoot of Completed Bogstad Knockoff

December 27, 2017

Because my daughter wanted a hand knitted version of Dale of Norway’s Peace sweater, I designed a hand knitting construction accordingly and knitted her a Peace knockoff. She loves it, as do my two DILs, so I told them I’d knit each one a custom knockoff of their choice. This DIL chose Bogstad, so I adapted the color-work and construction to our unique specifications, making some changes to the color-work, so it would be exclusive to her, like extending the dominant horizontal bar into the sleeves, which more effectively ties them into the motif pattern. I completed this sweater months ago, but DIL lives far away, so I blocked it as best I could without her and mailed it. Well, it didn’t quite work. She’s visiting now, and brought the sweater. I reblocked it, and now it’s perfect for her.
