Knitting Pattern: Norway Shield Seven Years

Knitting Pattern: Norway Shield Seven Years


This is a PDF instant file. This is a pattern for a sweater for a seven year old boy or girl. The main pattern is white snowflakes on a red background. Inset at the front and back is a striking pattern of white lions on a dark red background. There are also mini "flags" in the Norwegian colors. At the hem and the wrists is a traditional pattern of people in white on a darker red background. At the neck, wrist, and hem is a pattern of alternating stripes in variegated red and dark blue. The back and front are similar with small adjustments. On the sleeves are more snowflakes with another variation of the Norwegian flag. You don't have to be Norwegian to knit this sweater!
Obviously other color combinations are possible.
Have fun!
