Knitting Pattern: Swedish Shield Four Years

Knitting Pattern: Swedish Shield Four Years


This is a pattern for a hand knit sweater for a four year old child.

Another variation of the Norwegian Shield sweater. This is the Swedish version, with white snowflakes on a blue background. Inset at the front and back is a striking pattern of golden lions on a blue background. There are also mini flags in the Swedish colors. At the hem and the wrists is a traditional pattern of people in white on a red background. At the neck, wrist, and hem is a pattern of alternating stripes in red and dark blue. The back and front are similar with small adjustments. On the sleeves are more snowflakes with another variation of the Swedish flag.

Pattern has written directions, materials lists, and full color charts to enlarge. The pattern assumes a good knowledge of knitting, or at least an adventurous spirit and a knitting guidelines book. Obviously other color combinations are possible.

Have fun!
