Ever since I visited Norway last September and got the “knitting fever” pass over from my mom, almost every single project that I have done, has been a Dorthe Skappel Sweater knitting project . However, I haven’t been the only one who’s been spending my evenings in front on the TV with knitting needles in my hands, because my mom has been knitting too! And since I have had so many readers interested in this sweater, I figured I would share my mom’s projects too, so that you guys could get to see how this sweater can be made in so many different ways just by choosing a different type of yarn and size knitting needle.
My little sister was home last September too and of course also she wanted to have one of those really great and comfy Dorthe Skappel Sweater, so Cathrine and I went yarn shopping and my mom got the great honors of knitting the sweater for her!:)
Cathrine chose hers too be a warm grey color, and my mom knitted this sweater using the exact pattern as described in The Pattern for the “Dorthe Skappel Sweater” in English and on the the Maria Skappel homepage. The only thing she changed from the original pattern is the type of yarn, and this sweater, like my jacket from From Skeins of Yarn, to a Woolen Jacket and then into a basket of full of Woll Balls!, has been knitted with a sport yarn, which makes the sweater nice and thick, and you can wash it warm in your washing machine!
There was more sweaters to come, so stay tuned!:)
