Isager Archives - Norma Sweater -

My Favourite Things Knitwear has released the Norma Sweater. Another beautiful design! The Norma Sweater is made with Isager Tweed in Sand as main colour with a thread of Mohair Silk in colour 6. The contrasting colour is Topaz in Tweed with colour 67 in Mohair plus two threads of Tvinni in colour 28 (orange red). Unfortunately we do not carry Tvinni, you can also use Spinni 3-thread in colour 28. Instead of Tvinni you can also use Highland or Alpaca 2.

My Favorite Things Knitwear (Louise Rasmussen) writes about the design:

To be allowed to dive into Åse Lund Jensen’s work and reinterpret one of her old patterns was a dream for me. Åse Lund Jensen is a knitting pioneer. So it is with great reverence, that I send my interpretation Norma Sweater out into the world.

Norma Sweater is based on Åse Lund Jensen’s classic sweater design ‘Svendborg’, and fragments of the pattern report form the basis for distinct stripes of Norma Sweater. To bring the design from the 60s into the present and into MFTK’s design universe, I have subtracted more than I have added.

The fit and expression are classic, elegant, and comfortable. Deep raglan, slightly oversized, wide sleeves. A unisex sweater that can be worn by everyone.

The combination of colors and pattern report was a natural and intuitive choice, which arose already during the first collection meeting at Isager in Tversted. I was attracted by the clean, graphic pattern report and lines of ‘Svendborg’ right away.

I went with my intuition and threw myself into my very first multicolored design. I have had many ideas for multicolored designs over the years, but it is only now – standing on the shoulders of Åse – that it feels right to publish.

With Norma Sweater, I have strived to create an accessible design that hopefully encourages more people to venture into the discipline of knitting in multiple colors. The sweater is worked with a maximum of two colours at a time, making it both simple, fun, and manageable.

Norma Sweater is a tribute to the classic Nordic knitting tradition and to one of its great pioneers.

The sweater is available in sizes XS to 4XL. In total you will need:
Main colour:
4- 6 skeins of tweed and
4-6 skeins of mohair for the main colour
Contrast colour orange-red: 1 skein
Contrast colour turquoise blue you need 1-2 skeins of Tweed Topaz (unfortunately sold out, will arrive at the beginning of March) and
1 ball of mohair in colour 67

We have a few suggestions for you here if you want to go in a different colour direction.
