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.


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.

    I’m still working on my blanket squares! I love the moose one! Thank you so much for sharing your home and your time and patterns with us!

    I love the wrist warmers, mittens and the clip of the musicians; I must explore their music.

    I vaguely remember one of you saying that you love radio. Have you found yet? You can listen to radio all around the world.

    I enjoy getting a view of the world through your eyes and I would love to see that iced over lake. Take care and stay warm.

    Good morning, you two, from the mitten state US! I wanted to tell you how happy I am with the finished Hedvig blanket I did from your pattern! I will try to attach a pic or two. I have a question though…the last page of the pattern is the graphic for the finished blanket. Would you mind sharing what software that was done on? I thought I may try to do some designing now that I am retired and have the time! I would appreciate any info you could share!

    Thanks also for you two just simply being you…you’re a delightful respite from all the negativity and drama in our current world!

    • Beth on February 18, 2021 at 6:41 pm


    🥰 So happy to have you both back in my living room. Some day, I would LOVE to see some of your local antique stores. Of course, it would only make me envious, but I would really enjoy it.
    Thank you!

    Do you two know the movie Sweet Land? It’s about a woman who comes from Norway to Minnesota in America to marry a Norwegian immigrant farmer between the world wars. But her story is a little more complicated than the farmer expected! The scene in the old train station when she arrives reminds me of your home. It’s a beautiful movie and some of the costumes came from real residents of the town where the film was shot. Here’s more:

    I am weary from being on eBay trying to buy your beautiful book Easter Knits. I am desperately wanting to knit my granddaughters Blythe and Morven their Easter gifts. Sadly outbidded greatly by probable book collector as this is out of print and selling for £££ (hundred+). Now though I have discovered that I have lots and lots of fun ahead reading your huge amounts of blogs and watching your informative and priceless videos. Thank you both. I loved telling my daughter about the twisted rib as she’s embarking on your Mittens. I taught both my daughter and Blythe (7) to knit. Morven is too young yet but eager to learn, perhaps start end of the year. Thank you so much for your endless support during difficult times and saving the mental health of so many unknowingly. 💕💕

    Thank you both so much for helping us all through these difficult times. Your senses of humour and playfulness remind us that even in dark times there is reason for joy. Carlos, so glad you are working your way through your long-term effects of Covid.
    I was happy to hear Arne mention needle felting. I tried it first a couple of years ago – did an evening workshop in a lovely LYS, using a kit, to make a cute little sheep. Everyone used the same materials and we ended up with sheep with very different personalities. It was so much fun! The instructor took a photo of them all lined up – what a giggle!
    I look forward to Arne showing us his needle felting, and perhaps doing a video on the process.

    Does Nancy Drew drive a blue roadster in your books?
    In mine, her roadster was a sky blue convertible sports car.
    I would love to knit a block of that!

    I recently found you in You Tube. I have been watching your videos and enjoy them very much. I have been watching while I knit and when I can’t knit because of painful arthritis, they provide a very pleasant diversion. You have taught me a lot. I intend to try the Norwegian way of knitting. I bought your book of knitted dolls. I have a lot of your same interests and it’s fun. My mom was of Swedish descent. I would have loved to share your videos with her. When I was a child I remember her singing a few songs in Swedish. I remember a song that had words sounding like “Come sconing, come sconing…” She said the last part translates as “We’ll dip it in the honey and then we’ll grow big and fat.” It always made me laugh. Wishing you the best of health and luck. Keep making those videos, please. Thanks!
