Traditional Danish Sweater

Posted by Lis Barsuglia-Madsen on

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.

Happy Knitting!
