Norwegian Kofte Course Update!




Greetings from the farm!


The Norwegian Kofte Course will launch on January 23, 2021.

Below is the updated information for the course. (See previous post).


Registration for the course will open on November 21st.


The price of the course is $68 US dollars.

That is $6 US dollars per week + $8 US dollars for the cost of the pattern.


There are so many Kofter we could choose from within the Koftebok series!

For this beginner course however, we will knit either the Gammel Sandvik (picture within the previous post) or the Tynset pictured here) Kofte from Kofteboken 3.


The Gammel Sandvik contains longer floats within the stranded knitting.

The Tynset Kofte is less challenging.


These Kofte are knit in the round from the top, down.

This is best for beginner or intermediate Kofte knitters.

In an advanced course, we could knit from the bottom up and have additional steeking and finishing lessons.


Both are knit using Rauma Finull PT2 garn.

Sizing:

Below are the sizes given for the Kofte.

Once we take the measurements of our own, real bodies, if adjustments need to be made we will make them to include additional sizes, smaller or larger.

We will take this directly via email.

I have hired an experienced, professional, Norwegian Tech Editor to support me within this course to be inclusive to all sizes.


Gammel Sandvik Measurements: The book considers these sizes: XS/S, M, L/XL, XXL

Under arm/chest: (87), 101, (115), 130 centimeters


Tynset Measurements: The book considers these sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL

Under arm/chest: (90), 98, (107), 115, (123), 127 centimeters
