Sorry long time no see! I have been just doing my projects at home, working and spending amazing time with my family and the blog gets neglected….
I thought I’d write this post in English as many people have asked me about the Icelandic knit ”Riddari” I am currently knitting.
I wanted to share two really good patterns with you.
The one I am using is in English, it is free and can be found here.
There is also a very good free Finnish pattern here which I will try after this as I love those striking colours. It is called ”Northern Lights” knit due to all amazing colours put into one knit -just like northern lights colours the northern sky during the winter.
I also wanted to explain how easy it is to adjust and trial the colour combinations for your own Icelandic knit. Use google sheets (or old school Excel :))! I of course opt in Google sheets as I have a Chromebook and I am google girl at heart 😉
To ease your process I attached here the sheet I have used and you can download it and amend the colours as you wish! Riddari
Below you see what it looks like and you can edit it in Google sheets. These are the colours I am going for now with my knit but you can amend them.
