Inverness Sweater in Familien

I am proud to have the Norwegian pattern for the Inverness Sweater printed in the bimonthly magazine Familien. This issue is filled with 40 pages of knit for the whole family. The English pattern for the Inverness Sweater was first published and photographed for Interweave Knits Winter 2016, but it is now also available in my Ravelry Store and on Loveknitting. The Inverness Sweater was brilliantly captured by Eivind Røhne worn by the gorgeous Alexandria Eissinger/Nordic Model Agency with hair and makeup by Jens J. Wiker, jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design and skirt by Judith Bech Design, a sweltering summer day in June last year at Villa Malla.

My classic aran sweater has a becoming a-line shape with a twisted rib introducing the twisted long cables with its dividers, ray of honey and seed stitch side panels. Knitted in the round from the bottom and up with modified dropped shoulder and a round neck with a double twisted rib.

The a-line sweater is worked from the bottom and up. The body and sleeves are worked in the round up to the armhole, then flat to the final bind off. The decreases are worked in each side of the body to create an a-line shape. The Inverness Sweater is knitted in Plymouth Yarn, Galway Worsted (100% wool, 100 g, 210 yds/192 m). The sample is knitted in Natural 1 with a gauge of 20 stitches and 28 rounds measuring 10 cm/4″ square. The sweater is graded from size XS to 2XL, with a bust circumference of 88 to 128 cm/31.5 to 47.5″. Above you can see a close up of the lovely texture and the statement jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design. The magazine Familien is available in selected supermarkets and news agents in Norway. If you live abroad you can order the Norwegian special magazine by e-mailing and then transfer payment into their bank account.
