The obsessively intricate Norwegian knitting patterns usually have a name, the place they’re originally from, or a person’s name. When I joined the Facebook knitting group Koftegruppa, I saw they have a huuuuuuge database of Norwegian knitting patterns, hundreds… and all for free. Many are ancient. [The catch: it’s all in Norwegian, there’s always a catch with free things isn’t there?] Anyway there it was, a pattern from the 50’s named FINN, like my boy. I couldn’t resist. Knit knit knit.
Can you please stand still by that wall?
Here’s the pattern in PDF: BMT_Finn-6
But there’s also good news for non-norwegian speakers, many sites offer free patterns in English as well, such as the pattern I followed for the size: VIKING1404 – ENGLISH You’ll find more on their website: Viking of Norway, catalogues. Click on a catalogue then scroll to the bottom, many (not all) will offer free PDF’s.
nr 10 from Viking 1404, I used Viking of Norway’s yarn Babyull, and I’m very pleased with it.
If any on my readers want me to look for a special name in the Koftegruppa database, I could do that 🙂
