Last out in the series of new designs photographed last December, is Laplace. The Palazzo Pants came before the matching Khayam jacket in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply. Brilliant sample knitter Grete Jenssen, aka ma9 on Ravelry, worked the parts for the wide-legged long trousers using a 3.75 mm/US 5 needle and a 24 stitches in stockinette stitch gauge measuring 10 cm/4″ across. Laplace is high-waisted and has side pockets with the opening in between the two cable repeats than run along the leg. I believe the pants could easily be turned into culottes by shortening the legs and I wonder if any of my test knitters will do this.
The last photo I will share shows the set from the front with Khayam tied. The set will be test knitted beginning on June the 6th before the pattern is released in both Norwegian and English. But before then I will show you the fantastic photos that Wenche Hoel-Knai took of model Olivia Lindtein.
