Knit with Aabhar – Norwegian Fir Lace Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description

Norwegian Fir Lace Stitch is a lovely lace pattern that creates a light and airy fabric. The pattern gets its name from the way the column of motifs looks like tall Norwegian Fir trees. The knitted fabric has a proper drape making it a perfect pattern for knitting lace cowls and scarves. You can combine it with other patterns to make a really gorgeous project.

Even though it is just an 8-row and 12-stitches pattern, it is slightly more complex than usual lace patterns. If you are already familiar with lace knitting, you can try challenging yourself with this intermediate-level pattern.

This free knitting pattern is excellent for baby blankets, trims on cardigans, on the yoke of baby dresses, and even spring scarves.

    I’ve Been Knitting Most of My Life, But Have Evidently done something Wrong. The multiple of12+1.
    I casted on 117 or 9×13.
    On Rows 3,5,7 The pattern eliminates 5 Sts.
    I’ve Ripped Back and re Casted the Sts. But after the first row it doesn’t end for mess printed.
    Plus I’m loosing the 5 Sts on those 3 Rows!
    Please advise, would love to make it into a Prayer Shawl. Joni Miller

      Hi Joni, you have to cast multiple of 12 + 1, and not multiple of 13.
      What that means is it will be multiples of 12 and then you add another stitch. So, in your case, you can either cast (12 x 9) + 1 = 108 + 1 = 109 stitches or cast (12 x 10) + 1 = 120 + 1 = 121 stitches.
      I hope that helps. Do let me know if you’re still facing any issue.
      And once you finish, please tag us and share on social media 🙂

    Yours is the only pattern that got it right. 3 others omitted the ‘repeat to last 11 stitches’ directive. Couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong until I read your pattern. Thank you!
