Setesdal sweater, snug fit
I have knitted a sweater for my sister, old pattern, classic norwegian pattern, but new design. It was fun to knit, and the result is very ok!

Setesdal sweater, snug fit
Hi, Virtuella:
The sweater image in the second picture looks a little small; however a turtleneck should help. The stitches look neat and even, though. And the pattern/design is very nice. Hope your sister likes it.

She wanted it a bit snug, because she is going to wear it under a windbreaker, and she dont like to look like the Michelineman! :-) Of course she is wearing a scarf or a turtleneck and mittens and all that useful stuff!

I'm of the opinion that snug is almost always better for a knit sweater. It looks great to me.
