Amazing Winter!

This winter has been absolutely the best. Lots of snow. It has been years since we have been able to get out on our XC skies as many days in a row as this winter.

Latest Pattern

Memory & Though are Odin's 2 Ravens. They are also known as Hugin & Mugin.

I've placed the Sun Wheel between each of the 4 sets of Ravens. Plus the Norwegian

Fana Stars below. A true Scandinavian Sweater.

Entire sweater is worked in the DK Sock yarn, so it should be a long lasting sweater for years to come.

You could do sections of this sweater or replace the motifs with something different, as long as your numbers add up.

 

Have Fun!
