Ugly Knitting V1.2

I don't want to seem to negative. I love that people offer patterns for free, even big yarn companies with their pdfs saturated in advertising.

I only have one issue with it; when these big companies offer a pattern for free they don't really have to stop to think 'Why would someone pay for this?' This seems to give birth to some delightfully horrendous knits.

These two patterns make me feel funny inside, both from the same designer I stare at them wondering 'Why?'
Team Norge




Don't get me wrong, I love Norway and can even speak a bit. Also they completely are gods of knitting. Even if I was a Norse knitting goddess I don't really think I would want to wear this around(esp in winter brrrr!)


Cold Much Mantle



I don't thing I would want to wear this to Antarctica even though there is no one there to see you apart from pengiuns and seals.

Hi there,

I just seen this post and, okay, I am the one person who would love to knit the Norwegian flag halter - especially to post on my 'Norge Thingy' blog.

Can I bug you about where you can get the pattern for that?

The hat/cowl thing....I don't need so much. ;-)

Takk!
