Basketknit

Finished with the Nemidress I ended up with just two larger projects to work with, the Pinwheel and the Seasweater. Now, the reasonable thing to do is to finish these as well before starting on something new, but am I reasonable? No, I don’t think so. I was very inspired by a post written by Lise on her blog about an old Norwegian technique, and of course I had to give it a try. The technique was originally called “weaveknit”, but from the sixties the name “basketknit” was used. Lise has made a good description of the technique here. It is in Norwegian, but if anyone want to give it a try let me know, and I will try to translate it for you. I’m also very interested to know if this is a spesific Norwegian technique or if it’s also known of in other countries. My project is a cardigan for me (I know, I’m very egoistic considering my projects these days), and the pictures show how far I’ve got and details of the technique.

Jeg var så fornøyd med å ha avslutta et stort prosjekt, Nemikjolen, og tenkte at de to andre store prosjektene mine nå skulle til pers. Men så ble jeg så inspirert av et innlegg på Lise sin blog om kurvstrikk, at jeg satte igang enda et prosjekt, nemlig en omslagsjakke til meg selv. Så da er jeg tilbake der jeg startet med intet mindre enn tre uferdige prosjekt på pinnene. Bildene viser hvor langt jeg har kommet, og detaljer for å vise frem teknikken. Lise gir en flott beskrivelse av kurvstrikk her.

  1. takk for tipset, det må jeg prøve meg på.
    Siste tema-uka går nå……ILD/VARME.
    Lykke til!

  2. Do send me a translation. It looks a bit like linen stitch or a twisted stitches (knitting thhrough back of loops).

    We had a Danish lady at our Angel Knits group last year using this. We do get quite a lot of Scandinavian people and we also have Anna who speaks all Scandinavian languages and who I believe used to live in Norway so I hope you meet her.
