FROM HERE TO
Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Some things are made to last a lifetime, other things are made to last for eternity
The Eternity Shawl, or Wrap if you like, is just that … made to last into eternity ...YES, I am in LOVE, I want this bundle!
When you make this shawl you make almost 2 meters or 7 feet of pure love.
A piece like this takes concentration, determination and persistence to finish.
However, the prize when you cross the finish line is the ultimate feeling of mastery, love and gratitude.
Mastery because finishing a huge piece like this is bound to create the feeling of mastering in you - and isn't that just the best feeling? Boosting your self-esteem and confidence. There is little that can compete with that.
Gratitude because you are able to create such a beautiful piece, which you perhaps didn’t see yourself ever knit … and enjoy the process.
Love … simply because it follows naturally from the mastering and gratitude!
You might argue that making it would also take you a lifetime ...
I promise you, it doesn’t!
All Anne's designs are inspired by the Norwegian nature and light. So also this shawl and the color combination 🤍
Original yarn is 27 stitches per 10cm/4” yarn … or fingering yarn if you like.
Needles: 3 mm/ 2 US
Number of colors: 7
Knitted in the round and steeked - keep on reading and see how you can fix that steeking (and if you are new to this, steeking means to cut open in the knitting language)!
Size: approximately 180-200 cm / 6-7 feet long and approx 75 cm /2.5 feet wide (can easily be adapted to any size you want)
Original yarn: Supersoft from Holst
Yarn required of original yarn: 12 balls for the shortest version and 13 for the longest.
N.O.W. Y.O.U. M.I.G.H.T. T.H.I.N.K.
"Well, I hear you, but I will never be able to make this shawl."
And, that’s when I say
You are wrong, my dear knitter!
If you have knitted colorwork before and you decide that you WANT to knit this, then you CAN knit this.
You just need to make a plan … because this project is not a two week project.
This is a project to treasure and enjoy to the max.
A project where you knit one row and then you "just have to" sit there and touch and look at your work for a few minutes before you knit the next row.
The Eternity Shawl Experience is a Mountain Rose Shawl designed with Norwegian knitting traditions in mind - and this is the second time it is made available in English - and most likely the last time it will be available in this form.
This is a shawl to USE into eternity and you will in this experience get all you need to make the shawl in the next 52 weeks ... if not sooner.
You can adapt both the width and the length to your own preferences, however remember to also adjust the yarn amount you buy.
The shawl is knit in the round before you steek it (if you not familiar with the jargon, steek means cut). And to make sure you are covered, you get a complete steeking and finishing course which will enable you to make any kind of steeking in the future.
You also get a list of shops and a video to help you find yarn shops that have the original yarn.
And if you cannot find the yarn, or want to use a local yarn, you will find a video tutorial and pdf explaining how and where to find alternative yarn.
An extensive walk through of colors and how to pick your colors to get the most out of the pattern and makes sure the pattern doesn't “disappear” in the colors - you also get forever access to Color Party Workshop that will be held in May 9, more info will come.
I know that this project can be a challenge and the best of us might need a little motivation now and then to get it finished. Therefore you also get a 52 week long inspiration plan to help you get to the finish line - and monthly check ins in the Facebook group Anne’s Norwegian Knitting to motivate and inspire you to move forward
And of course the pattern itself - AND pattern to a matching hat AND pattern to matching fingerless gloves ... AND another surprise pattern later this year.I REALLY REALLY WANT THIS EXPERIENCE!

Anne's work is stellar, and the patterns and courses are a dream to follow.
I love Anne’s patterns as they are so straightforward and very easy to understand. Also her tutorials are brilliant.
I’ve been knitting and learning from Anne for the last year. Her patterns are easy to follow and understand. What I also like are her tutorial videos. They are helpful in explaining the pattern and makes your knitting easier and increases your knitting confidence. The end result is a sweater that will fit beautifully and you will love.

Who's the designer?
That's me, Anne!
A knitting designer, a yarn lover, color conscious Norwegian , knitting motivator and in love with nature and knitting of all kinds.
Short story is that I have knitted since ... forever.
I have designed knitting patterns my whole life, as I always have made my own designs and never ever followed someone else's pattern (apart from 2 times). I have designed for you guys for nearly 10 years now and thousands of people have knitted my patterns in Norwegian. Now I am all focused on you knitting the patterns in English - and, in addition to designing, teaching knitting is now my mission. And what can I say? I am loving every minute of it!
There is little I find more inspiring than to motivate YOU to move your needles and create magic.
