5201 Alpina

Just a fabulous classic sweater. The book says: "The Alpina design... was part of the official outfit for the Norwegian alpine ski team at the World Cup competition in Bad Gastein in 1958." We don't have to describe its great looks and lasting appeal-- you can see that. We will say that this is decidedly not for beginners. Body and sleeves are worked in the round, with the body tapering a little wider as you work up to the chest. The front neck opening is steeked (i.e., you cast on 3 dummy stitches over the stitches on hold at the base of the neck, and continue knitting on those 3 only in rounds; they are cut open later). The armholes are cut open from the body without a special cutting field, after machine sewing reinforcement. The V-shaped fair isle neckband is knitted separately in the round, cut open, and sewn in place. Facings are used throughout. If you're skilled and brave, you'll have a treasure and an heirloom-in-the-making. Cap is knit in the round too. Happily, all charts are large and clear!

This design is from Dale of Norway Book 52.
