This the Nysted Sweater was worked in my hand dyed Merino/Cashmere/Nylon I used 4 skeins, and added an entire star motif to make it longer.
The pattern was designed by a Danish Designer - Vivian Hoxbro. It is published in her new book: Traditional Danish Sweaters, published by Trafalger Square. I worked mine from the Danish book.
The Traditional Danish Sweaters were actually called Night Sweaters (shirts).
Sleeves are 3/4 length.
I cannot wait for some cooler temperatures to wear mine.
The book gives a lot of different Star patterns from century old sweaters that Vivian studied at the Danish Museums around the country.
It is well written and gives you a lot of interesting history, plus you will learn a lot of new techniques.
