Snoningstrøje

Snoningstrøje baby

Snoningstrøje from Strikkede babydrømme (Lullaby Knits, in english) by Vibe Ulrik Sondergaard, but I used the free pattern in danish found here. I made it in Sandnes Alpakka in the colourway 5563 somewhere between blue and purple. For the 18-24 months size I used 3.5 skeins about 400 meters.  I lengthened the body 3 cable repeats and shortened the yoke 2 or 3 cable repeats since the original had a very long yoke which can restrict arm movement. I think that the ribbed cable structure will allow it to grow with the child and make it fit for a slightly longer period. Now that I deciphered the pattern, being 1/4 danish don’t make it any easier all though I will send the next danish pattern to my aunt so she can translate it for me before I start.
