|My family in my sweaters New hat and sweater on Paul my son|
instruction for finishing a Norwegian style sweater knit in the round
with steeks. The above sweater on my son Paul is my new Mythical
Creatures Too. The "Too" is to distinguish it from the earlier Mythical
Creatures hat. It had a different design. That other hat is in the last blog....

in Norwegian (Dyr does not meen deer! but animal!)
this word may be omited if you want the grey boder all the way around.
See picture below for this border at sides...
mark and cut body slightly less than width. About 4-5 sts at edge of body are
lost at each side.
