Skogsmörker -a wristwarmer in Bohusstickning

The first wristwarmer is ready.It's not blocked but you maybe can see the soft fluffy surface.The yarn is made by 50% Merinowool and 50% Angora.As there are many colours ,1 black ,4 green and 3 blue/blue green colurs there has been hard to knit but in daylight.Yes I have been ripping up more than one time but I'm very satisfied with the result.Number 2 is on the needles now.


In this link you can see a modern variation of Bohus knitting but they have used other types of yarn and the designer has done a version of her own.The typical way to do the pattern is to knit some purl stitches here and there.

Here you can find a picture of the one I have done but there is a variation of colour in one "pattern" on the wristwarmer

There are many different patterns for different products and almost every item is made in the yarn with Merinowool and Angora.
