Fanakofte - traditional Norwegian pattern

Sofie and I are living in Lagos. No use for wollen clothes here. But we are moving back to Stavanger in August, and Sofie will need wollen jackets then. She has grown so much this year, that new clothes are required. I offered to knit her a sweater of her choice. She chose a traditional knittet jacket from Fana, normally seen in dark blue and white, grey and white or possible red and white.

Sofie insisted on orange and red. I must admit I thought this would be two too bright colours together, but I had promised. So I have now knitted the sleeves and the body and are going to assemble the sweather soon. I have opened the body for front and sleeves, and cut out the neck. It will be finnished before August.
