Norwegian Fir Knit Stitch

This lovely stitch is commonly used for trim on cardigans and sweaters (on the yoke and/or down the sleeves). It could also be used for spring scarves. The pattern is light, airy and easy to knit! This intricate pattern is created using knit and purl stitches! 

Terms found in this pattern: YO- yarn over. This means to To make a yarn over, you simply bring the knitting yarn (the “over” strand) over the needle between two existing stitches on one row, and then work that strand as a stitch when you work your way back to it in the next row.
