Welcome to Knit like a Norwegian – your brand new digital knitting toolkit. This site will aim to cover the Basics of Knitting, from choice of yarn and needles to Tutorials on how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off and read patterns. We will also be hosting a regular Norwegian Knitters series where we interview the big Norwegian influencers and brands, to find out what inspires them – and of course, their best kept secrets.
Figures released last year showed that 43% of women and 4% of men in Norway had knitted one or more garments in the past year. This is a whopping increase from the 5% of women and 0% of men who had partaken in the same study in 2010, which means the Norwegian knitting trend is booming.
In our We’re Knitting section, you’ll find a range of our latest projects from some of the key makers of Scandi patterns. We’ll be speaking to some of the key Scandinavian knitters and brands, in order to get into the mindset of a true Scandi knitter and draw out any tips and advice they might have. Got an idea of who to speak to next, or what to cover? Let us know – we’d love to hear from you.
