Publication date

Moomins at the Sea is the fourth issue of the popular Moomin x Novita pattern bookazines. The patterns are designed for Moomin x Novita yarns, including our latest addition, Novita Majakkasaari. The colours of Majakkasaari are inspired by Tove Jansson's maritime illustrations. All Moomin x Novita yarns are DK weight, so you can easily change any yarn for another. Moomins at the Sea features seven patterns in all.

The sea is a predominant element in Moominvalley, and it provides the scene and backdrop for many of the literary Moomin adventures. The Moomins are ever fascinated by the sea, exciting and unpredictable during storms or gentle and poetically beautiful when calm. The sea is a mystery and an endless source of inspiration for the inhabitants of Moomivalley. Naturally, we were equally inspired by the Moomins' maritime world when creating the patterns for this bookazine.

Gauge and Swatching

Every pattern is based on a certain gauge, expressed as stitches or rows per 10 cm. It is important that you make a swatch to check your gauge before you start the actual project. If your gauge doesn’t match the pattern’s gauge, your finished garment won’t be the correct size either.

Swatching Start by knitting a swatch. Use the yarn, the needles and the stitch pattern you intend to use in the project. Make the swatch a little wider than 10 cm, so that you’ll be able to measure the stitches properly. Block the swatch by pinning it to a surface, then steam it gently. Count the stitches; put a pin in a stitch, then measure 10 cm from that stitch and put another pin there. Count the stitches from pin to pin – that’s your gauge! If needed, measure both horizontal and vertical gauge (rows). If you’re measuring rib or brioche stitches, stretch out the swatch slightly before measuring.

Adjusting gauge

If your gauge doesn’t match the pattern gauge, you can adjust it by switching needle size. If your swatch has too few stitches per 10 cm (i.e. your knitting is too loose), switch to smaller needles. Conversely, if your swatch has too many stitches per 10 cm, your knitting is too tight and you’ll need a larger pair of needles. Always knit another swatch in order to determine proper gauge and sizing. Also note that the pattern yardage only applies to the pattern yarn, the yardage may differ if you choose another yarn.
