Merino Vest Wrap and Tau Scarf in Familien På Pinnene

The Norwegian magazine Familien has published yet another special issue called “På Pinnene”/On the Needles and I am delighted to say that it includes two of my patterns: Merino Vest Wrap and Tau (a scarf). The vest was first published in my Norwegian knitting book (only translated into Finnish), but Eivind Røhne photographed it again last May, modelled by the gorgeous Emma Ross with make-up & hair styling by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design. Above you see the cover of the magazine.

The Merino Vest Wrap is knitted in the hand dyed Madeline Tosh Sock using 3 mm/US 2.5 needles. Great in Blue is the headline followed by: The vest is knitted sideways in an hand dyed yarn with Indian crosses. The last two words belong to the scarf and were deleted during the proof reading.

Tau scarf was made for the Vienna Wool & Design Festival magazine “Wool 2 Go” in May 2017. I knitted the sample in Lang Yarns, Yak using 4.5 mm/US 9 needles.
