Norwegian Sweater

I wanted to knit this Norwegian style sweater for myself, but before I tried the new-to-me technique of steeking (cutting into the sweater and then knitting up from there), I thought it would be better to knit something in a smaller size that used the technique.   The pattern I selected (Geilo Child by Dale of Norway) ended up becoming more complicated than I originally planned, but I’m happy with the results.  I knit the 2T size, and since it’s quite oversize now, there will likely be at least two or three winters of wear out of it. sweater 1 sweater4

Update: I got a “Best in Show” ribbon at the local fair for it in August.
