The design was inspired by Norwegian Rosemåling. I wanted to include both a heart and tulip (both are icons of love). I’ve also included our favorite almond chocolate cookie recipe [with the pattern]. I hope you like it.
Knit in the round. Bottom up. It’s a super quick knit. Made with 2 strands of with Plötulopi. If you have two plates, you can take the strands from the strands from the inside or the outside of each plate. If you only have 1 plate left, you can knit with one strand from the inside and one strand from the outside. Its fluffy and magically and light weight, yet super warm. After the body and the sleeves are knit, they are all joined together in the yoke and the fun begins with the color work. Carry the gold in the left hand the the white in the right hand putting the gold in the dominant position. Decrease as indicated in the chart and the top is finished with an I-cord bind off.
Please choose gauge-size needles. Swatch with both single color and color work. Every knitter is different, but I used a U.S. size 7 (4.5 mm) for the ribbing and U.S. size 9 (5.5mm) for the gauge-size needles in 32 (40 inch for larger sizes) circular needles and double-pointed needles/flexiflips and 16-inch circular needle for the gauge-sized needles.
Gauge is 14 stitches and 19 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
