Idunn Pattern Released

The next pattern I have released in my Ravelry store in English is Idunn, made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk’s yarn kits. The pattern has been test knitted and I am thrilled to see all the finished projects on Ravelry. Idunn was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne, worn by the stunning model Alexandria Eissinger/Nordic Model Agency, with hair & make up by Jens J. Wiker and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, at Villa Malla in June last year. The pattern is also available in English at Loveknitting and in Norwegian together with the original yarn in your own colour choice from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

Named after the Norse goddess of spring and immortality is this straight sweater with a Henley neck with center cables. Ribs frame the cables in each side and make the sweater figure hugging. One center cable adds texture to the sleeve. The sweater is worked in the round to the underarm in the lustrous pelt yarn with a mohair feel, Tinde Pelsull from Hifa.

  1. I still love this sweater, especially in the yarn you used. More than in the String Theory version, the texture really pops and even the neckline has dimension…well done!

    • I am delighted to hear it, Ruth! Thank you so much! Yes, the Tinde Pelsullgarn (pelt yarn) has so much elasticity in it so it does make the cable pop.
