Sit and Knit for a Bit – Episode 6.

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 latest 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 previous blocks

Norwegian word of the week: Hosobånd which means garter. The word Hoso is dialect for stocking and bånd (the å is pronounced like “oh”) means band or ribbon.

Hope you enjoyed today’s podcast, remember to tag your photos of your blocks with #sitandknitforabit on Instagram so that we can see them! Keep scrolling for today’s video and new block!

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.

    Try card weaving to make the garters.

      • Maria on October 28, 2020 at 10:53 pm


      I was thinking the same thing. I have cards but as we are on the move I wonder where they could be ? 😅

    I too thought I would make my own bunad – and I’m a pretty accomplished seamstress. Suffice it to say that a few years later when visiting Norway I went to Husflid in Oslo and bought one. Yes very expensive but extremely well made by hand, meters and meters of wool and brocade and also made to be let out if needed down the road. Can’t wait to see yours all finished. Mine is from the Arendahl area.

    Thank you for the free patterns. I have to have heart surgry soon. So I will be in hospital for some days. I’m going to start the knitted blanket with the charts.
    I have an older craft book that has a Christmas blanket done with different charts. It is gorgeous…so I’m sure this one will be also.
    Thank to both of you wonderful gentleman!

    Is this the beginning of “garter gate”? : )

    • Torhild on October 31, 2020 at 5:20 pm


    Tusen takk for enda ett nytt mønster, ferdigstrikket for mitt KAL teppe. Det vokser litt sakte for tiden, men blir ferdig før det blir altfor kaldt her i Nederland.

    (PS. To små feil har sneket seg inn på linje 23 😉 )
