lusekofte for a toddler.

well i am trying to post about it again. but it seems that it is a bit difficult to post successfully here. many other than i have many attempts and then pictures vanish once posted. it is really too bad.

i thought a few days ago that i had totally lost my knitting mojo and then i got the idea to make a 'lusekofte' for a toddler after ez's recipe. well i have looked in many other books among them vibeke lind: knitting in the nordic tradition, a book from the eighties which have a lot of (no real patterns) and annechen sibbern bohn's lovely little book of norwegian stitch pattern, which ez uses for a reference as well and which can still be purchased, at least second hand. if you are at all interested in norwegian knitting get it. it is a gem which i have used on and off for 25 years.

the sweater will once finished fit a 1 year old + . the wool is rowanspun in a greyish and a brownish shade. the wool is discontinued but i have a lot of it in my stash and i think it is the most lovely wool ever. i cut a swatch in two yesterday and it does not unravel at all. i can't wait to do the steeks. it is so interesting since i haven't made anything of the kind for so many years.


  • The pictures are fabulous! Although I have been knitting for a long time, I am still a little afraid of trying anything with a color pattern that complicated. You are an inspiration.
