It's been years since I knitted Nordic style sweaters. They were very popular in the 1980's. This little sweater was knit with a bulk style acrylic yarn in a size 4. I did this in an acrylic for easy washing for young children. It knitted up quite quickly and was fun working with the various colours.
I found the pattern at our local thrift store along with enough wool to make two of these sweaters in small sizes. The pattern comes from an old Beehive "Nordic Knits" pattern book #440.
