Project Information/Materials List:
I have designed a traditional Norwegian "hals" (cowl, neckwarmer) specifically for this course, which includes all of the stranded knitting skills and techniques you need to learn, practice and master stranded knitting.
You will be able to download the pattern two days before the course begins.
I will post an update on the Stranded Knitting participant BLOG when and how to download.
You will need:
3 skeins of Rauma Finullgarn - Norwegian wool or the equivalent.
Rauma Finullgarn has a gauge of 26 stitches = 10 cm (3.0 mm)
It comes in 50 gram balls = 175 meters
Please note! If you knit the larger sizes of the cowl, additional yarn can be needed.
The original design is fully tech edited, but the larger sizes are untested.
I am suggesting 1 ball each of a dark and light, natural shade + 1 ball with a pop of colour.
The dark colour is used for the ribbing and a motif. The light colour is used for
the background and the pop of colour is also used within the design motif.
I have used 405 Dark Grey, 403 Light Grey + Muted Red 4131
You will need a 40 cm or 60 cm circular needle.
Please note: The needle sizes below are only a recommendation.
You must use the a needle size to obtain gauge.
Needle Guage Size
2,5 mm 28 sts 60 cm (original design)
3,0 mm 26 sts 65 cm
3,5 mm 24 sts 70 cm
