New Design: Beyla

Next out in the series of new designs, is the last of the four design for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk for spring 2021, Beyla. It is brilliantly knitted in the new yarn Varde using a 4.5 mm/US 7 needle by my sample knitter Airin Hansen, aka AirinHHansen on Ravelry, with a gauge of 18 stitches and 24 rows in stockinette stitch using 4.5 mm/US 7 needle measures 10 cm/4” square after blocking. An all over cable pattern where the collar is a continuation of the body was my design idea. Yarn kits are already available with either Norwegian or English pattern, while the individual pattern will be released after test knitting on Ravelry, later this spring.

Named Beyla, Norse for little bean, well suited for the shape of the cables on this pullover. All over cables play on the front and back, while only three cables play on the sleeve. The purl stitches in the background make the sweater hug you. Beyla is crowned by a standing collar and knitted in Varde a bouncy pelt wool yarn from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

These photos of me wearing size Small are taken by my husband in our back garden back in November. I am wearing it with + 4 cm/1.5″ of ease, and I have graded the design from sizes XS to 5XL with a finished bust measurement of 85 to 153 cm/33.5 to 60″.

The pullover is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed. The cable pattern continues on the collar which is worked in the round with an interfacing part.

Beyla will be test knitted in my Ravelry group, beginning on April 5, before the pattern is released. But you will already find yarn kits, with either English or Norwegian pattern, available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

The style and colour looked perfect on Model Olivia Lindtein, as you can see from the yarn kit page. I look forward to showing you all the pictures of Beyla from our photoshoot.
