Sarah Lund - Brown Sweater Motif

The Killing is a Danish TV series that has recently been broadcast in the UK. The show is about a Danish police detective who is trying to solve a murder. In the show she wears a couple of beautiful handknit sweaters: A white wool sweater with a natural brown star pattern, and a brown version with a white diamond pattern. The sweaters are knit in a traditional Faroes Island technique.

Where to buy wool for knitting this sweater. I think this sweater would also be stunning knit with natural handspun yarns.

The Killing will be available for purchase in a DVD box set via Amazon.co.uk on April 4, 2011. The show is in Danish, with English subtitles. Series 2 and 3 have also been produced and will be airing on BBC at a later date. A US version of this series is being developed.

Handspun, Handknit Jumpers

If you are looking for something a bit different, how about a Sami-style handknit sweater? These are handknit from handspun pure white merino wool, and decorated with a Sami-style handwoven band – in Sami traditional colors, of course.
