Cuddly "Marius" fleece

Added Oct 14, 2012

Bergen, Norway






This is a fleece set I made for my man. After extensive nagging on his part. What happened was that I promised to knit him a sweater in the traditional Norwegian pattern called “Marius”.. as I am no avid knitter, this has taken me some time and this sweater has been about 2 years in the making (bonus picture provided above..). Since sewing is a relatively faster activity than knitting (at least in my case) and I came across this fantastic fleece fabric the other day I made him a fleece set, to buy myself some time to finish knitting the infamous sweater.. (I figure I´ve bought myself a couple of years more, wouldn´t you say?) The pants are Kwik Sew K3663 (freakously large in sizing, be aware!) and the jacket is the Amin from Burdastyle. The jacket is a really nice pattern, might consider sewing them up again in a more formal fabric ;) Please excuse the bad pattern matching on the jacket next to the right arm.. I have no idea what happened there, but couldn´t really fix it when I discovered it.. Tried to convince the receiver that no one would notice.. (although it is definitely noticeable :( )

Material Notes

4 m of Dark blue/Marius-patterned fleece
