About pattern

The design is called Jakt, which is Norwegian for the English word Hunt. Both the colours and motifs are chosen from outdoor life themes.

The sweater is knitted bottom up, and with yoke. Ribbing is used for edges. The fit is meant to be loose. If adjusting the length of the sleeves or body, remember it will affect the amount of yarn.

The story about sweater Jakt

A friend suggested that Aud B should make a design inspired from outdoor life, and so she did.

You will get a glimpse of both the fishing line and the forest on the sweater. And you should also be able to recognize the tracks of a couple of animals.
