If you have visited the National Nordic Museum and you are a knitter, there is a chance that you have admired the cardigan hanging behind glass in the Museum. The motif used for these works is called Nordfjord. Its a traditional Norwegian Kofte, and the one that hangs in the Museum has some particularly lovely features! Kristin's goal was to write a pattern for this beautiful sweater that is easy to follow, and to teach a class that will give you all the skills to make your own Nordfjordkofte.

This class will focus on starting the colorwork of the sweater sleeves and the body, and working the buttonholes into the fabric. After six hours, you will be ready to proceed to the rest on your own! Kristin will assist after the class has concluded via Zoom to check on students' progress.
