Scandinavian Winter Knit-Along in Novita 7 VELJESTÄ Knitting Kit
Take yourself on a Scandinavian adventure whilst remaining in the comfort of your home with our winter Knit-Along (KAL) created in Novita 7 VELJESTÄ. Designed by Nicola Valiji, Scandinavian Winter celebrates the wonder of this beautiful part of the world with its traditional Nordic patterns and wintry colour scheme.
Nicola is super excited about this project, here's what she had to say. "I wanted to design a Scandinavian style blanket that looks more complicated than it is. I have used slip stitches and mock cables to create the Scandi style but keeping it simple. This project is ideal for beginners who wish to expand their skills".
Keeping with the tradition of this Nordic style. This blanket has been created in Novita 7 VELJESTÄ, translating to 7 Brothers, being at just the right strength and with its magnificent colours has made this yarn a true long-term favourite. Originating from Finland, 7 VELJESTÄ yarn contains 75% Wool and 25% Polyamide. The softness of the yarn comes from the high-quality wool, and the strength from the polyamide used.
The Knit-Along (KAL) will commence on 7th February 2020 for a duration of 5 weeks, with a new section of the pattern added every week, Friday at 10.00 am GMT on Website, dedicated Facebook group - Deramores: The Projects, Social Media, Blog and on our Newsletter. The Pattern will be available FREE as a Digital Download and comes in UK Terminology.

I really LOVE going through the patterns and choosing new ones for my ( little library). Always looking out for something different to what i may already have , its usually toys that i make or the odd unusual item but i can always guarantee their something here that I have not seen before or just really like to try. I drive my husband up the wall though as he thinks I could stock a craft shop with the amount of craft items i have..hee hee hee.
Arrived intact and prompt. Pleased with purchase and looking forward to starting to make.
Really lovely yarn and an easy to follow pattern. I picked the suggested colours which look lovely together. I learnt lots of new techniques with this project. I’m not the best at sewing up and I would say my blanket has a slightly quirky homemade quality which I quite like. I’m still finishing off the sewing up and the border. Great support from the Facebook group too
I am really enjoying creating this throw. The wool is a pleasure to knit with and the squares are a perfect size to knit up quickly. Knitting this item is keeping me sane during the lockdown and I am looking forward to snuggling up on the soon to be finished product.
not much to say as this was a digital donload of a pattern. it is the novita blanket free download. came through as soon as i ordered it
