We’re in Norway – on a fabulous knitting cruise where we will see the spectacular coastline and
enjoy learning about Norwegian knitting traditions. One of them is the Norwegian Star motif that you
will find on sweaters, hats and mittens. So I took the Norwegian star, enlarged it, cut it in half and
completed it to a triangular shawl: This is “Half Norwegian”! You will need equal amounts of your
two favorite colors in a fingering weight yarn – but the pattern will also work in other yarn weights
if you prefer. Pick a color-changing yarn for the half star for an extra fun effect! As a bonus, there are
(almost) no stitches to cast on or cast off.
This pattern can be worked with yarn of any weight. You will need the same amount of yarn in any weight. For the size depicted (length: 160 cm, depth: 84 cm) we recommend at least 400 m per color.
