New Design: Epona

It is time to reveal another new design. I knew that I wanted to use the cable from the Macha Jacket on a pullover and gave it a high rib. Epona is made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk and knitted in divine Sølje Pelsullgarn in a dark green shade. The yarn kit with Norwegian pattern will be launched at Oslo Design Fair in August, while the English pattern will be test knitted in my Ravelry group, beginning 14th October before the pattern is released. The sample is beautifully knitted by Kristin Nygård, aka Quiltefeen on Ravelry and Instagram, using a 3 mm/US 2.5 needle. Michael has photographed me wearing size small at the The Halden Canal Museum in Ørje.

Graceful cables run along the center of this pullover with a high rib, creating a narrower waist. A sweater perfect for riding or worn together with a skirt, it is crowned by a high collar with interfacing to make it stand up. Epona is Celtic for the Goddess of horses and knitted in Sølje Pelsullgarn from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk in a deep bottlegreen shade.

I have graded the pattern in sizes XS to 2XL with a bust circumference of 84 to 124 cm/33 to 49″.  The pullover is knitted in pieces and seamed. The cable pattern continues on the collar which is worked in the round.
