The ladies' Wintergarden design can be knit by experienced knitters in Heilo
. The pattern has instructions for 2 chest widths: 41" finished chest measurement, which fits US ladies' size 8 to 12, and 47" finished chest measurement, which fits US ladies' size 14 to 18. You can easily vary the body and sleeve lengths while maintaining the motifs. Kits come with the pattersn and enough yarn to make the hip length version in your size. The armholes are steeked, using the same traditional Norwegian construction found in many Dale designs. For more information on steeks, visit my 7 page steek tutorial
, where you'll even see some "action" shots taken when Wintergarden was in the works.
As always, we encourage you to use any 2 colors your heart desires in Heilo or Falk. Call or email Mary Ann with any questions.
And remember, the kit prices save you several dollars off the sum of the parts!
