DALE GARN CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF PEACE!

No more waiting! Finally Dale Garn is launching the Peace sweater pattern for hand knitters.

Amazingly enough, it has been 10 years since the Peace swea­ter was launched as a ready to wear product. For several years, there has been a demand that Dale Garn publish this pattern for enthusiastic knitters. The Peace sweater even has a secret Facebook group pushing for this pattern’s publication.

It began with the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. That year’s theme was ‘Peace & Harmony.’ This theme inspired knitwear designer, Randi Sunde, to develop this absolutely beautiful and well formulated concept. ’Peace’ was one of many sweater designs launched by Dale in the run up to the Olympics. ‘Peace’ quickly became a success and remains among the best sellers long after the games, Randi adds:  “I love all the grand, geometric ornamentations we have in Norway and the related traditional borders which have been adapted from designs around the world. Therefore, it was so wonderful to be able to work with the Peace design!”

DESIGN ELEMENTS
The Peace sweater was required to have its very obvious roots in Norwegian border traditions and a carefully adapted eight-pointed star design – especially the heart shaped star – included as main elements. The sweater became a masterpiece and an expression for great design competence.

In addition to many beautifully executed details, Randi de­signed embroidered vining flowers and the ‘heart-rose’ motif, which continues throughout the sweater. The result is an exclu­sive, timeless, and feminine design that has become an elegant classic, as great now as it was ten years ago!

The Peace sweater carries on a long and proud Norwegian tradition of knitting and ornamentation. Now you can partici­pate in this wonderful tradition, and we hope you have many wonderful hours with your knitting needles. When you are finally done, and can use this beautiful sweater, you will have reason to be proud of yourself. The Peace sweater is now your masterpiece!
