Traveling to Norway was never on my bucket list until I started knitting. Now I can’t get it out of my mind. Fjords, mountains and the midnight sun are certainly attractions, but what draws me the most is their traditional stranded colorwork. Fanciful animals, interesting geometric shapes and gorgeous flora and fauna are all represented in their colorful mittens and sweaters.
This cowl, worked in the round with a provisional cast-on and joined with kitchener in the round, is a sampler of many of these images. This kit includes the perfect amount of eight beautiful colors of WayfaringYarns Wayfarer fingering weight yarn and a free Ravelry download coupon for the pattern, AND it’s on sale through Saturday, February 29th.
If you have yarn from your stash you’d like to use, you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry. The pattern is also on sale. Use the coupon code dreamtoknit to receive 20% off the price.
