UPDATE: Check out the “DALE” set in my Ravelry Library (three pages…and growing!) The “sets” utility is awesome – it not only allows me to group all of my Dale books in one place; it also allows you to browse through them to see the gazillion project ideas available. If the book is out of print (and many that you see there are) Dale of Norway allows Dale dealers, like me, to give you a FREE copy of the pattern with your project’s yarn purchase. Just email me at “mas AT kidsknits DOT com” to get any project requirements. HAPPY BROWSING!!
While Dale of Norway always has several wonderful current publications for sale, the majority of their exquisite designs fall into the “out of print” category. Fortunately, it is their policy to allow Dale dealers, like me, to issue “kits” using free – yep, free– copies of their out-of-print designs, as long as the free, out-of-print knitting pattern (printed or PDF) is accompanied by the purchase of the requisite Dale of Norway / Dalegarn yarn for the same out-of-print project. Especially now that traditional Norwegian knitting is enjoying a well-deserved resurgence in popularity, I figure it’s high time I open my own Dale library up to knitters for this purpose. (And, yeah, okay, so maybe I want to show off my awesome collection a bit!) It might take a while for me to list everything. Plus, I add things to my library occasionally. So, you might want to check back every now and again. Where possible, I’ll give you a link to the out-of-print projects on Ravelry, so that you can get a few more ideas about the great – and free – possibilities hiding in my library, thanks to DofN. If you’re interested in getting a Dale kit using one of these out-of-print patterns, email me directly at mas “at” kidsknits “dot” com or call the toll-free (US) number 877-631-3031 and we’ll work things out.
Caveat: Dale of Norway holds the copyright to these patterns, not me. I honor and adhere strictly to their policies. Since availability of these patterns is entirely at the discretion of the copyright holders, please understand that availability of any of these patterns can be subject to change.
