If anyone honors their Viking heritage – it’s Icelanders! To recognize the return of Vikings® Season 4 to The History Channel ® on February 18th, Melissa (skadiknitter on Ravelry) started a Knit-A-Long to inspire your inner Viking.
The KAL uses my Icelandic Shawl for the Cathare People pattern, a great choice for either men or women.
Try knitting it in Gilitrutt; Melissa will be knitting it in Viking Rust (of course!) and Natural Grey.
As for me, it was the occasion to update the pattern: I made a new layout with Charline‘s adorable illustrations, add written instructions of the charts and a few technical tips. I also added a Gilitrutt kit on my website.
Details for the Knit-A-Long can be found on my Icelandic Knitter group page on Ravelry. We’ll have fun, share stories and you can win prizes of yarn and patterns! Hope you join Melissa as we set sail on a new adventure!
