What was your inspiration?
The pattern is from a traditional sweater from the Finnish region of Southern Ostrobothnia. The original designer of a Jussipaita (transl. Jussi sweater); is not known. It has been speculated that the design appeared first time in the film Pohjalaisia year 1925 and it was a modification of a traditional sweater from Southern Ostrobothnia.
BTW, interesting area this Southern Ostrobothnia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puukkojunkkari
What are you most proud of?
I am proud that I made them!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is not very difficult, but you have to know how to make patterns with two colours.
