One of my husband's friends recently lost his mother. When she died, she left quite a bit of wool and knitting--including a large in-process colorwork sweater intended for him.
The friend sent it home with David for me to look at--and I'm pretty sure it is a worsted-weight Norwegian-style sweater planned to be a cardigan. There is no yarn with the project, and no pattern.
The sleeves are finished with the exception of stitching the facings under...
...and the body is finished up to the top--but it needs to be steeked, the neck and edge stitches picked up, etc.
It would mean a great deal to David's friend to have the sweater finished.
Does anyone recognize the pattern, by any chance? Might anyone know what the yarn is?
I'd love suggestions about how to proceed. Any ideas?
