Here is the hat and jacket I knitted with s lot of help from my mother. Without her it would not have been done as I didn't know I had to do steeking!! So I am giving my mom the book as a thank you since the pattern in it is from 2-8 years and that's too small for my kids... My mom knits jackets and sweaters much faster than I do and she knits for a lot of friends and family so I think the book will be used a lot :)
I am not sure why the pattern appears to be a bit asymmetrical the further up you look at the jacket, but I guess it might have something to do with the buttons or the buttonbands... It bothers me a bit, but it's nothing I can do about it now...
Photo from Tove Fevang's facebook page. I like this photo better than the one in the book ;)
Yarn: Smart from Sandnes Garn, about 350 g each of red and white.
Needles: The pattern calls for 3 and 3,5 mm, but I had a hard time getting the right gauge so I used 4 mm.
Size: 8 years
I really love the sweater on the book cover!
Tove Fevang has delved into the archives to Sandnes Uldvarefabrikk and found traditional patterns dating back to the 1950's. The result is this book, which includes patterns for beloved garments and patterns all adapted to our time.
