Check out these cute sweaters at Yarn & Thread Expressions, a local yarn store in California.
Yarn & Thread Expressions used three skeins of Viking of Norway Raggen yarn to make their set.
Raggen is a sport weight (5 sts/inch) yarn that is a 70% Superwash Wool, 30% Nylon blend. Each 150 gram ball has about 250 yards.
This yarn is great for everything from boot socks and hats to sweaters.
Have you knit a sweater using sock yarn?
The store also sent us a picture of these great hats.
The knit hat, on the mannequin head, is a house pattern at Yarn & Thread Expressions, so you’ll want to call them (619) 460-YARN (9276) to get the pattern and supplies.
The smaller hat, on the table, is the Basic Crochet Hat from Crochet Today (contact the store for more details).
Both hats were made using Viking of Norway Odin yarn. This 100% Superwash Wool has a suggested knitting gauge of 4.5 sts/inch. Each 100 gram ball has about 175 yards.
As the “superwash” in the name implies, Odin is machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle! But you should still dry it flat.
Odin is available in a range of both solid and variegated colorways. Browse Odin patterns on our main website. We recently added several Viking of Norway Odin patterns to our Free Patterns section.
