This cardigan can be found in Lucinda Guy's Northern Knits book.
Since the 1950s, bright colors and bold patterning have been the mainstay of Norwegian knitwear, and skiwear in particular. Thora is a classic-styled cardigan inspired by this relatively new tradition. The bands of patterns that include birds, zigzags, and stylized leaves and flowers, are all inspired by Norwegian embroideries and are steeped in folk traditions.
Knitted in Dale of Norway’s naturally insulating pure wool Heilo yarn, this cardigan makes ideal skiwear, of course!
