SIT and KNIT for a BIT KAL PATTERN

Materials: Any DK yarn in any quality, texture or any colour. It’s really up to you! The gauge of the yarn you are looking for in your stash is approximately 22 stitches and 30 rows to 10 cms/ 4 inches. However, dot worry if it’s not exactly this, everything will work. We promise!

You will need yarn in 2 different colours for each daily clue, and the quantities per colour per clue are going to be very small, about 6 – 8 grams per colour.

Needles: 2 needles size 4.0 mm / U.S. Size 6. We are working with 2 dpns in 20 cm length / U.S. 8”. Since we will be knitting back and forth, you can use other, longer needles if you like, but the shortest size should be 20cm / 8”. Don’t go for anything shorter than this! Circular needles can also be used.

Finished size of our squares: After blocking them, our blocks are 13cm wide x 14 cm long. Do not worry if your squares are not the same size as ours. The project will be individually tailored to your yarn, and there are no sizes to worry about.

WRITTEN PATTERN:

CO 29 sts = row 1.

Knit the next 38 rows following the daily charts below.

(Even-numbered rows are purl rows and odd-numbered rows are knit rows.)

Bind off after row 39 purlwise.

Sew in ends and press the square with a wet towel and a hot iron.

Our best tip to keep the edges neat:

We knit the first stitch on each needle, both when working knit-side and purl-side, to make a more firm edge. On needles were we use both colours, we knit the last stitch with both colours, but when we turn the work, we knit or purl the first stitch only with the main colour.

    Hi Arne & Carlos! For some reason, I can’t access Episode 12. The usual photo of the two of you is not there – instead there is an enlargement of the Quarantine Knitting pattern (so it appears 2x) but no way to get to your video. I am probably not the only one experiencing this. Look forward to catching up with you when I can view Ep. 12!
    Many, many thanks for all that you do!
    Jeanne L.

    Hello my friends! I found the tutorial on making the Christmas tree for the dollhouse and in the beginning of this tutorial
    you mentioned we could purchase the pattern. I cannot find it in the shop. Is it still available?

    Can’t wait to start the advent 2020!

    I’m ready to come back to Norway!

    Dear Arne and Carlos, Thank you for your Wednesday and Sunday YouTube visits. You both, and the beautiful dogs, have made the covid crisis more bearable. Watching your programs and knitting the beautiful squares and projects brings much happiness; and creative moments. Stay healthy, happy, and safe! All the best from the U.S.A.

    Hi Arne and Carlos! Have downloaded the Advent patterns for 2020 and they look good.
    Knitting the candle flame in yellow yarn works well too for the ornament.

    Dear Arne and Carlos, a few weeks ago a contact on TikTok, a very good knitter!, suggested that I check out your YouTube blogs and newsletters. I am so grateful for that introduction to you, I enjoy your videos and your work so much! I learn from you, love hearing the stories about Norwegian culture and traditions (my grandmother was Norwegian), and you really help me to relax in a time when my anxiety is through the roof! Thank you for all of your communications and your hard work. I am not expressing properly how glad I am to have ‘met’ you. Best wishes, Nancy
