It's an old Norwegian pattern, the yarn a thin wool that slides comfortably enough on the needles. The only problem is that there are almost 400 stitches! By the time I was at the top of the sweater, it was long and quite heavy! Not helping on the shoulder, I must say. But now the body is done, and I only have to do the sleeves! They are featherweights in comparison!
This particular pattern has an interesting addition of embroidery around the neck:) I will keep you posted as I start embroidering it.
