Neverkont knitting

 

 

For some years I have been knitting sweaters and hats in the old knitting tecnique called Neverkont (Entrelac, Basket weave knitting). I strive to knit the garments in one complete piece, that means avoiding scissoring and sowing together pieces.

In Norwegian the name is 'kontstrikking' because of the visual resemblance to 'neverkont' which is a rucksack weaved from from birch bark bands.

 

I have tried to write a knitting pattern in English. First draft here. The model is not on the picture above, but has much of the same construction as the three sweaters on the top.
