Description: Sixties Norwegian styled sweater.
I'm a bit puzzled by the yarn weight of Emu "Fiord". This pattern seems to be from the 1960s and the yarn tension and needles imply it is definitely a double knitting weight. I have other patterns from the 1970s with a definite chunky tension. I can only think that Emu retained the brand name Fiord and used it in a later decade for a different yarn. (Ravelry seems to show the later yarn on the website).
