Dale is known for its classic Norwegian colorwork patterns, and these new books do not disappoint.
In fact, these books are a bit unique for Dale because the colowork patterns are so large. Many of our current patterns by the company offer only a small colowork motif – these do not skimp. Every inch of the sweater is accounted for.
I am particularly fond of this striped sweater – darling for boys and girls alike.
We also received a book featuring the official jumpers for the Norwegian ski team from 1956-2010. It’s so fun to see how the designs have morphed over the years, and to be able to take a look at some of these old photos.
The designs are so classic – so appropriate now as well as then.
I love this design from 1972. Groovy!
This sweater from 1988 looks almost identical to a Norwegian sweater my mom used to wear in the 90s.
Streamlined in ’06.
These books are worth a look, even if you don’t plan to make any of them, just for the pictures. Come on in and take a look! Hopefully, someone will knit one of these – they are totally gorgeous.
