SIT and KNIT for a BIT Episode 5

Every week, we will give you a recap on everything that is going on around here, and we will also continue to release new blocks for the free knitalong that we started during our quarantine, back in March! We hope you will join us on this adventure!

New episodes will be published on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm Central Europe / 12:00 pm Eastern / 11:00 am Central / 9:00 am Pacific and can be viewed any time after that. And of course, we will continue publishing our regular tutorials every Sunday at the usual time!

The fifth episode of our new podcast “Sit and Knit for a Bit” is available now. Check out the video below and keep scrolling for today’s block as well as the full pattern and blocks 1-34.

Norwegian word of the week: DUGNAD which is very important here in Norway and translates into working together (for free) to achieve a common goal, beneficial to all and /or for the good of the community. The Swedish word was FIKA which is a coffee break, but where you are enjoying that moment either by yourself or in the company of friends. Being “in the moment” enjoying a cosy time is a Scandinavian way of life when we are forced to spend time indoors.

And because we mentioned our solo exhibition, curated by the National Museum, which opened at the Centre for Design and Architecture (DogA) in Oslo in 2012 and closed in the Museum of Alta, in northern Norway in 2015, here are some photos which we hope you will enjoy:

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.
