Yellow Gold Pullover Released

yellow-gold-coverYes, this is not a new pattern but the rights have reverted to me from Interweave Knits and it is now available in English in my Ravelry Store and on Loveknitting. The English pattern was first published in Interweave Knits Fall 2015 issue, and in Norwegian in Familien Strikk in August 2016. The sample knitted sweater is one of five designs exhibited at Strikke 2016 at Hadeland Glassverk, and will be there until 30. October. Yellow Gold Pullover was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne at Villa Malla by the fjord in June, worn by gorgeous model Alexandria Eissinger with hair & make up by Jens J. Wiker and jewelry by Kaja Gjedebo Design. Here is my introduction to the pattern:

Elegant chain link cables framed by a welt pattern adorn this casual sweater. It is knitted straight from the bottom and up in parts with extra ease for comfort. Spindrift, a fine heathered wool was chosen for its lightness and color. The round neck makes it easy to wear over a crisp shirt or your favorite t-shirt.
