Here is a Viking Knits Sweater for the Viking Guy. In this case, with my good-looking Godson #1, Joar, as a model. The photoshoot took place at a local “hembygdsgård”, a kind of outdoor museum with old houses and farming paraphernalia. We had a cold but lovely afternoon together.

The Yarn is my lovely Misty Wool, 75% Wool, 25% Hemp, a comfortable blend, adding interest to the stockinette sections of the design. The sweater has a cabled yoke that accentuates the shoulders and, as an unusual feature, the cabling is echoed on the bottom of the sleeve.

The lower part of the body is plain stockinette, and since it is knitted from the yoke down, you can easily adjust the length to suit your Viking Guy. And if you prefer working this part in the round to avoid those pesky purls, that is easily done.

Photo as always, Anders Rydell.

Happy Knitting!
