Yarn: The pattern calls for Rowan Norwegian Wool, and we offer a yarn bundle of all five colors here.
1 Ball of each of the following 5 colors: 018 Ribbon Red, 012 Gold Nugget, 010 Wind Chime, 011 Daphne, 020 Frost Pink. If 018 Ribbon Red is sold out, use 023 Red Velvet.
Feel free to use your own yarn if you like, as with all MDK knitalongs.
Schedule: February 1 through February 28.
Prizes! We love to see your progress on social media! Take photos of your hat in progress and post on Instagram or Facebook, and tag them with #arnecarlos and #moderndailyknitting. You’ll be eligible to win all the Rowan Norwegian Wool needed to knit the Valdres Sweater from Field Guide No. 23: Glow, plus some beautiful sets of dpns and circulars from Prym!
I’m looking forward to making the Knitalong Setesdal Hat. I was planning to order the Norwegian Wool along with the Field Guide No. 23. I would also like to order Norwegian Wool to make the Kos Neckwarmer. Could you tell me how many balls of each color I need? I’d prefer to just place 1 order, so I don’t have the pattern yet to know how much to order. Thank You!
Since you can make the hat in a 2-color version with 2 balls of yarn, it would be interesting to know how much of each color is consumed in making the full color version. I’m going to guess that at least 2 hats can be made in the multl-color version by shifting the colors around, and maybe one more ball of the yarn would allow for 3, though some design elements might have to be skipped over.
One of the hazards of taking notes on a loose sheet of paper is that it’s not always possible to find them…
I knit the sample and am nearly positive that 2 full and identical hats can be made with the 5 balls, and more if you swap the shades around.
I am so looking forward to this knit along! I have always been curious about these sorts of social media events, but I always find out about them too late! Trying to stay up to date with MDK and was so proud of myself to have ordered my knit along bundle as soon as it was available! And now I am typing this comment to be sure I know how to make comments and participate in the lounge ;))
I am brand new to this community and a novice knitter. I am so excited to join in with a beautiful pattern and the lovely yarn. Just arrived today! Since I am not too confident, I began the setesdal in my own yarns to make sure I could follow the directions. So far so good. What is the best way to draw this pretty Norwegian wool from the ball? Have fun everyone.
