Norwegian word of the week: Båndfletting and Båndveving, which translates to ribbon-weaving and ribbon-braiding, which is how we make our garters for our folk costume.

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.

    Arne: thank you for the genealogy information. I am an avid genealogist; my Dad’s father was born in the US of parents who were both born in Norway. Genealogy is one of my passions. Good for you, researching your ancestors.

    Thank you for your informative and entertaining videos. I have only recently discovered your You Tube channel and find your videos to be a welcome diversion from the other troubles the world is facing at present. I was hoping you could please direct me to the source of the pattern for the pullover that Arne is wearing in this episode – the round yoke with red and black fairisle and red ‘lice’? It does not seem to be in your store or on Ravelry but it looks so very comfortable and I would like to make it if I could.
    I also LOVE the videos of your garden and the lake – I live in Queensland, Australia, and to say that your gardening experiences and mine are wildly different is an understatement!
    Thank you for sharing your expertise. Stay safe.
    Jenny
