Norge is a traditional coastal jumper with influence from the Setesdal region of Norway. The allover net pattern is inspired by the fishermen who have braved the wild seas outside the comfort of the fjords, the same cold seas their descendants now use for aquaculture; thus carrying on a tradition to a new generation. This can be seen in the upper motifs, the Norwegian Roses are a birdseye view of the many fish farms that can now be seen in the area. While the speckled waves and seeding pattern look like ropes use to culture lines of mussels and oysters.
The body is knitted in the round, with armhole steeks that are cut open before picking up stitches to work the top-down sleeves.
Our Norge Jumper Bundle contains Pip Colourwork, with the original colour way using Hessle as the main colour and White Rose as the contrast colour. Each kit will also include a printed version of the pattern. We hope you love this pattern as much as we do!
