Nordic mix sweater Breipakket

This knitting kit contains the necessary wool in the original colors to knit the Nordic Mix Sweater, the English pattern will be sent to you by mail.

The Nordic Mix Sweater is a boxy sweater with a patchwork of traditional Nordic knitting patterns designed by Laura Dalgaard.



Laura Dalgaard designed the Nordic Mix Sweater for Fremstrikk. It is a sweater with colorwork patterns inspired by traditional knitting from the Nordic countries. “I am first and foremost inspired by the yarn, that is Fivel. I wanted to create a mash-up of various traditional patterns and give them new life,” Laura says. She found old pictures of knitted sweaters, cut them apart, and glued them back together to create a sweater with different patterns. Laura also made a swatch with traditional patterns that included a leopard pattern to break it up a bit. But it wasn’t enough. It had to be more unique. She then tried to blend the different patterns together. That’s when it started to resemble what she had envisioned.
