Vintage Patterns - Vintage Fabric - Vintage Style

A 50s classic

February 9, 2014

Hello all!

I this is not (mostly) sewing, but to be technical I knitted the fabric and had to sew it into a sweater, so I’m counting it as sewing ๐Ÿ˜‰

Besides, I really want to share my latest make with you all, and of course this lovely part of Norwegian culture!

This is a traditional Norwegian knitted sweater, called “Marius”. It is an immensely popular pattern, and has been for over 60 years. I made it for my Mister, but it sadly turned out too small, so I have a new sweater now! ย Woot ๐Ÿ™‚


If you want to see and read more about it, you are all welcome over to my place by clicking the photo.

  1. It was only when I posted about my sweaters (knitted on a knitting machine, using 1950’s patterns) that I realized there is no tag for knitting here on We Sew Retro, so maybe those things didn’t actually belong hereโ€ฆ
    But I’m very impressed with your sweater.
