Norwegian Attempt

This is my first attempt at a Norwegian style sweater. I did it on the machine(Brother 940).

The yarn is 50 % Merino, 30% Cashmere and 20% Silk.

It hasn't worked out quite as I had in mind. The hems are in doublejaquard, with EON in work on ribber. Although knitted much lower in tenison MB6 and RB 3, than the main part which is Tension 10 single bed, the hem is wider than the body and therefore doesn't hang correctly. I don't know why so will have to fiddle. I know it can be done because I have seen sweaters with such hems. I am pleased with the neck band though which is SB Fairisle with a st st backing.
