So I bought a norwegian thimble and I need an easy pattern to test it out.

Any ideas?

I had to Google to see what it was. Let us know how it works out! You could go to www.knittingpatterncentral.com or ravelry.com and search for Fair Isle or stranded knitting patterns.

I googled it too. The video I found said it keeps the yarn from twisting in the back; I haven't done much with stranded knitting, just some practice, but twisting the yarn strands is something I've been working to do. Yeah, let us know how it works out for you.

I'd never seen a Norwegian thimble either. Thanks for the tip. Here's a simple pattern to get started with fair isle.
