Heisann. I'm new here. My name is Freja.

I am trying to find a pattern or a lesson in how to combine the different coloured wools for the top section of Norwegian fishermens' jumper.

I was only ever taught 'casting on, casting off, knit and purl' by my mother and I will be looking forward to my Scottish granny teaching me cable knit soon, however, I never was taught how to mix the coloured wools into a pattern other than stripes, of course. Do any of you have a pattern you would share with me, or are any of you with webcam and willing to show me what to do? I've had a request from a friend in Australia to make him one of these and send it to him. He did also ask if I might send a nice Scandinavian lady along with it. >:D

Any help appreciated. Takk. Hade.

I told my mother today that I 'can't knit in Danish'.

Which really means that after learning the basics from mom (knit and purl), I learned the rest from Internet articles in English.

Welcome Post

Just a short welcome post from the moderator. I don't feel there's a need for a whole bunch of rules just now, at least while we're still a small community. So I'll just ask that you put photos under an lj-cut for now. Maybe it would be best to communicate in English, unless you have a specific pattern question or some such (personally, I can read Danish, Norweigian and Swedish, but that might not be the case for everyone here). Sound good?

Also, if anyone here is good at icon-making, I'd love it if you'd create one for the comm.

Welcome to nordic_knitters, I hope you enjoy your stay! :-)
