Dear Reader, Remember hygge? The Danish concept of “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being” made its way to the United States a few years ago, and the trend resonated strongly in the worlds of crafts and DIY. Ever since, hygge-associated imagery—lit fireplaces, cups of hot chocolate, stacks of books, and knitted home décor— has inspired people to create similar spaces in their own lives in order to manifest that feeling of contentment. Another concept that comes from Scandinavia but hasn’t yet made the same splash in the United States is practiced on Friday nights in Sweden. The idea is fredagsmys, which translates to “cozy Friday.” The concept should be familiar— many people appreciate a relaxing Friday night at home after a busy week—but Swedish people take it to the next level. They invite friends over, indulge in a taco bar (tacco kväll), and then settle in for a comfortable night of watching movies or playing board games. (Semi-related, not relevant, but very important: I just learned about lördagsgodis, or “Saturday candy,” and now I’d like to live in Sweden, please.) I first read about fredagsmys in Linnea Dunne’s book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Balanced Living (Running Press, 2017). Another fantastic philosophy to incorporate into one’s life, lagom means “not too little, not too much, just right.” I fell in love with both of these ideas and thought we all could lean into them a bit more. To learn more about these great concepts, check out Linnea’s piece on page 10. Building a project story around fredagsmys for this Fall 2019 issue of Interweave Knits led me to think about what makes the “perfect” fall weekend. I thought of crispy-cool, sunny days spent outside with activities such as the farmer’s market, apple picking, corn mazes, and similar things filling the time, and chilly nights around a bonfire with loved ones. Whatever your favorite fall activities are, you’ll find a wide range of projects in this issue to accompany you as the season progresses. Cozy and lightweight sweaters, textured hats and cowls, wraps and mittens, even a delightfully homey blanket—you’ll find it all in this issue.

FREDAGSMYS

FREDAGSMYS A SWEDISH LAGOM TRADITION BY LINNE A DUNN

It was a big, early-twentieth-century house, red with white trim, with nothing but fields as far as the eye could see on one side and two similar residential houses on the other, the far side of a big lawn with swings and perfect climbing trees and some land for growing potatoes and carrots. We were renting the self-contained first floor from the old man who lived downstairs, and I remember vividly what the thick floorboards felt like as we crawled and danced across them, the cold air rising through their wide gaps. The sitting room still had the original wallpaper, a majestic-looking pattern in forest green, and there was a big white fireplace nex t to which we had a couch—the family chill-out couch. Things were different then, of course: no Netflix to browse through should the programs on the three TV channels not take our fancy; no mobile phones or social media to mindlessly scroll through. And yet, as we gathered in that heart of the home every Friday evening, the change in pace must’ve stood out somehow, because the memory of those evenings is steeped in a different Lagom: The Swedish Art of Balanced Living is available for purchase at kind of calm, almost sacred, compared with other www.runningpress.com. memories, however positive, from that time. I remember the bowls of sour-cream dips and dunking a certain amount of quite neatly within the Swedish concept of lagom. You may have cauliflower florets and carrot sticks before feeling like I had earned heard of it—at the start of 2017, Vogue dubbed lagom the new hygge the crisps. I can still feel what it was like to run my finger across the (the Danish word for cozy moments with candles, comfort, and good tops of the soda bottles as I picked the flavor of that week’s treat, the chats), and the word has traveled far and wide since. Put simply, only time we were ever allowed a fizzy drink. It was never fancy or lagom means “not too little, not too much, but just enough,” or “just right,” and is all about balance and making the effort to figure out luxurious, never complicated—but it was always special. It was what we in Sweden call fredagsmys. what’s required and doing it properly, but not wasting time going over Fredagsmys—literally translating as “Friday cozy”—has grown the top for the sake of superficial impressions. Vegging on the couch into quite the tradition in Sweden: a time for families to unwind after with your favorite people in front of Netflix with some simple dips a busy week, to spend time together without the pressures of perform- and crisps, then, is very lagom indeed: it’s not pretentious, but it’s ing specific tasks or adhering to social rules. In many ways, it sits good for the soul.

FREDAGSMYS

LAGOM GOES DEEPER

I AM NOT POWERLESS

I have a confession to make. When I was first sent a link to that Vogue article, I nearly spat my coffee out. Lagom, as it happens, is not all that glamorous and aspirational in Sweden. If you dig a little deeper, it is quite easy to see how this love of balance and fairness and consensus is inextricably linked to Sweden’s long history of financial redistribution and a solid social security system, insisting that there’s a certain standard of living that we all deserve and that no one should be left behind. Yet to those who have never known anything else, who are so deep in the enjoyment of this system that they can’t even see it, any notion about lagom as a guiding principle risks falling flat, becoming little more than a promise of everyone being the same and no one daring to stand out. You could say that I felt that lagom would require more of a hard sell than hygge, but it was one I was willing to take on. My book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Balanced Living (Running Press, 2017) was published a few months later, and endless magazine editors and journalists asked me for top-10 lists of how to live lagom. I complied, yet I couldn’t help but feel like we were somehow missing a trick. Readers had become used to consuming Nordic comfort culture by buying beautiful blankets, minimalist candle holders, and woolly socks, and now they wanted to know how to buy into lagom. The issue, of course, is that a lot of the time, lagom isn’t all that mad about stuff, consumption, or even comfort. Hence, the hard sell. A keen structuralist thinker, I took it upon myself to explain why the fact that Swedes consistently rank among the happiest, healthiest, and most trusting people in the world can’t be attributed simply to the fact that they have well-designed homes and functionalist wardrobes. I insisted on bringing the narrative from the personal to the political, from the individual to the collective, and I talked about generous parental-leave policies, extensive sick-leave rights, free education, and a regulated rental market. Because, I argued, Sweden wouldn’t be lagom—or just right—if the concept didn’t permeate all of society, from the bottom up. It’s a lot easier to be happy when you don’t have to worry about what would happen if you got ill and couldn’t afford to go to the doctor. There’s nothing particularly cozy and relaxing about having time on your hands if you can’t afford the child care you need and your employer laughs at you when you bring up flexible working.

And yet, here I am, teaching my Swedish-Irish kids about fredagsmys as though my life depended on it. In fact, this year, as health complications forced me to slow down and the public health care system let me down, what I found was that I am not, in fact, powerless. I may be part of, and dependent on, a greater community and system, but even when said system is working flawlessly, there is such a thing as doing too much and hitting a wall; even when there isn’t, there are things you can do to create space and catch your breath. I started saying no to meeting friends on Friday nights; I started doing clear-outs, giving away toys and clothes and making space; I started going to the library and making time for reading again; and I started going to bed earlier and enjoying more peaceful mornings. And the more space I made, the more space I wanted. The takeaway? You can’t build a nation that tops all happiness indexes just by telling them to think lagom, to take regular breaks in work and invest in better storage solutions. But at a time of 24/7 Instagram notifications and an unending stream of holier-than-thou homeopathy schemes and fad diets, there’s a lot to be said for learning to press pause, shutting the door every Friday evening, getting into your loungewear, and setting the bar at a perfectly mediocre lagom level.

WHAT IS FREDAGSMYS?

Fredagsmys, which literally translates as “Friday cozy,” is a habit adopted by many Swedes every Friday evening after work. It typically involves getting out of your workwear and into your loungewear, preparing some simple food such as vegetable sticks, crisps, and dips, or Swedish-style pick-and-mix tacos, and putting on a film or bingeing on a current Netflix favorite. A book, a board game, or some knitting can also suffice, as long as it is done for enjoyment rather than a sense of obligation or pretense, and as long as expectations are managed so that no one feels pressured. Fredagsmys can be a lot of things, but it is never pretentious.

WHY TRY IT?

Fredagsmys is a way to connect with both yourself and your loved ones. It is a time free from homework, a night when bedtimes can be pushed back and comfort comes first. But as the bar for what has to be achieved or ticked off is set very low, it also becomes an opportunity to indulge in whatever it is you fancy doing most: finish that novel; catch up on Twitter with a film you’ve already seen in the background; paint your nails; or just close your eyes and half-doze. At a time when we are often led to believe that our value is equal to our productivity, that can be a great relief—or even a sanity saver.

PICKING UP STITCHES FOR A NECKBAND

PICKING UP STITCHES for a Neckband

BY ROX ANNE RICHARDSON

Knitting the neckband is usually one of the final tasks of a sweater project, and it can feel like a juggling act to pick up the correct number of stitches, to distribute them evenly, and to keep the pick-up row neat—without gaps or waffling. This article will make those challenges easier.

A KNITTER’S GUIDE TO

PICKING UP STITCHES FOR A NECKBAND

PLAN AHEAD A great result starts with a good foundation. Smooth edges make the process of picking up stitches easier and give the best result. There is no need to work the selvedge “in pattern”—a plain stockinette selvedge stitch will result in a perfectly smooth line of picked-up stitches along a vertical edge. Avoid slipping the stitches along an edge where you plan to pick up stitches later. A slipped stitch spans two rows, so slipping the selvedge stitches results in fewer selvedge stitches and can complicate the pick-up process. It’s easier to pick up three stitches for every four rows when you actually have four selvedge stitches instead of just two. Place decreases and increases at least one stitch away from the selvedge, keeping in mind that the shaping techniques will be visible after the neckband is added, so they should be mirrored to maintain symmetry. The V-neck in Photo 1 shows a neckline with rightleaning k2tog decreases worked on the left front and left-leaning ssk decreases worked on the right front.

PHOTO 1

THE PICK-UP PROCESS Once you’ve prepared the neckline edge stitches, it’s time to think about how stitches should be picked up along the selvedge.

Mark the Sections Most necks that are worked from the bottom up will have a combination of horizontal bound-off sections, diagonal edges shaped with decreases, and vertical edges that are worked even. The neckband instructions may indicate a specific number of stitches to pick up for each section, or they may indicate how many stitches to pick up in total, with some suggested pick-up ratios in each section to help you hit the target number. Clipping a locking stitch marker at the transition points from one section to another will help you keep track of your stitch count as you pick up stitches (and will help you adjust your stitch count later, if necessary). Photo 2 shows a swatch that simulates a right-front neckline before stitches have been picked up. A vertical edge at the top transitions to a short diagonal edge, then to a horizontal edge that consists of three stairstep bind-offs. A marker separates the horizontal center-front stitches from the vertical right-front stitches. The stitches are bound off at the center-front neck—rather than being placed on a holder—to provide stability in the neck opening and prevent it from stretching out.

PHOTO 2

Pick-Up Ratios When working in stockinette or stockinette-like fabrics, you will typically pick up one stitch for every stitch along horizontal bind-off edges because you are extending the existing fabric stitch for stitch. Some stitch patterns, such as cables, produce a very different stitch gauge than stockinette, so you will not pick up 1:1 along the bind-off edge. (See the tips at the end of the article.) It isn’t possible to pick up stitches along vertical edges at a rate of 1:1, given the fact that a stitch is wider than it is tall and there will be more rows than stitches per inch. If no ratio is specified, pick up about two stitches for every three rows or three stitches for every four rows.

Inserting the Knitting Needle

For vertical edges and diagonal edges Insert the knitting needle through the space between the selvedge stitch and the next stitch (Photo 3) and wrap or pick the working yarn and pull it through to the front.

A KNITTER’S GUIDE TO

PICKING UP STITCHES FOR A NECKBAND

For horizontal edges Insert the knitting needle through the center of a stitch below the bind-off chain (Photo 4), wrap or pick the working yarn, and pull it through the stitch to the front. Picking up through the center of a stitch creates continuity from the sweater body into the neckband ribbing. Picking up between stitches or directly under the bind-off chain will cause the columns of stitches forming the neck ribbing to have a half-stitch offset from the body stitches, as can be seen on the right side of the swatch in Photo 5. Continue inserting the needle through the center of each stitch directly below the bind-off chain, even as the bind-off edge steps up to a different row. (For sweaters worked top down, this is a cast-on edge.)

CORRECTING THE STITCH COUNT IN THE FIRST ROUND PHOTO 4

Because you aren’t picking up 1:1 along vertical edges, getting the exact number of stitches called for can be hit or miss, especially if your row gauge differs from the pattern gauge. But don’t worry: You can adjust the stitch count while working the first round of ribbing by evenly increasing or decreasing in each section where adjustment is needed. Use k2tog or p2tog to decrease in the rib pattern, and use k1f&b to increase wherever a knit stitch will be immediately followed by a purl (because k1f&b results in a knit stitch followed by a purl stitch).

ADDITIONAL TIPS Some knitters notice that the pick-up round is looser than the subsequent rounds of ribbing. Using a needle several sizes smaller for the pick-up than the needle used to work the rest of the neckband may be helpful and will also minimize gaps. Cabled fabric has more stitches per inch than stockinette, but the number of ribbed stitches needed for the neckband has to be the same as for stockinette. Picking up fewer stitches across a span where cables cross can cause gaps. You can either pick up more stitches than called for and work decreases on the first round, or you can decrease stitches while you bind off the cables. If a cablecrossing row coincides with the bind-off row, you can decrease while crossing the cable by working stitches on the front needle together with stitches on the back needle. As each decrease is worked, stitches are also bound off. The swatch in Photo 6 shows a pick-up in process across a bind-off row where cables were decreased as they were worked. By planning ahead as you work the neckline shaping and adjusting stitch counts with increases and decreases where needed, picking up stitches and establishing the ribbing will seem less like a juggling act and more like . . . well, knitting!

Like clockwork, ANNE JONES would run every four months to grab the latest copy of Interweave Knits and ogle the stunning designs, dog-earing her favorites. Each edition would steal her into its visual story and spur her to create the challenging designs. She still has all her old copies of Interweave Knits, and being included in this phenomenal publication is a dream come true. Check out her other designs on Ravelry at Anne Jones Designs.

NOTES The body and sleeves of this pullover are worked in the round from the bottom up to the yoke, then the pieces are joined for working the circular yoke. The Colorwork chart is worked using the stranded method. Always pick up the background color over the pattern color and pick up the pattern color from under the background color; this will prevent tangling. Keep floats loose. When shaping yoke, if a marker falls in the center of a decrease, remove the marker and replace it after the decrease.

RAVELINGS: SPARKING

JOY

SPARKING BY AL ANNA OKUN

On the bookshelf where I store my yarn in my apartment, there are some skeins that cause me shame. There’s the armload of squashy purple sportweight I bought at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival almost a decade ago; there are the four teal hanks of silk and merino I purchased from my hometown’s local yarn store right before I left for college; and there’s the solitary ball of zany striped sock yarn I picked up on a solo trip to Berlin. It has all remained stubbornly, disgracefully unknitted. There’s nothing wrong with any of this yarn. To the naked eye, there’s no difference between it and the yarn that I can barely keep on hand, given how quickly I convert it into projects. I know myself well enough now to not seek out mohair (too itchy for me) and to admire laceweight in the store but not take it home (too finicky for me). These yarns that I don’t use all seemed at some point viable, as though they held a promise, which I am now breaking. So, this all begs the following question: How do you get rid of yarn that you know, deep down, you’re never going to use? It’s a question that’s especially prevalent in the era of Marie Kondo, the author of the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (Ten Speed Press, 2014) and the star of the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. We are urged to ask ourselves “Does an object spark joy?” and to dispose of anything that doesn’t reach that high-water mark. But joy is a complicated thing, especially when it comes to crafting. I feel joy when I’m in the process of making a sock or figuring

out a complicated lace pattern, but I also feel it when I wake up in the morning and the first thing I see is my yarn collection. I feel joy when I think about who I was when I bought a particular skein, and I certainly feel joy in knowing that the (exorbitant!) amount of money I spend on materials isn’t going to waste. There’s just a lot of joy permeating every inch of my yarn collection, and so my joydar feels too broken for the Kondo method to be much use. Luckily, I’ve lately found something else that brings me joy: seeing my yarn have a second life with other people. This, then, is my current solution to the problem of unknittable yarn. I’ve begun attending yarn swaps with local friends and giving my yarn away to the new knitters I teach. I host crafternoons at my house and ask that guests bring wine or a snack in exchange for the skeins I’ll press into their hands as they leave. I can’t quite bring myself, yet, to donate my yarn or sell it to strangers, but seeing someone I care about proudly show off a hat they made with something I couldn’t find a use for is almost better than making that hat myself. The only problem with yarn swaps? I tend to leave with even more yarn to populate the bookshelf. ALANNA OKUN is a crafter and writer in New York City. She is the author of The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater (Flatiron Books, 2018).
