Photoshoot at Bøler Church 2022: Gavida

Finally, I will share the last set of photos from our photoshoot in June – at Bøler kirke/Church taken by photographer Eivind Røhne of Emmalin Williams, with make-up & hair styling by Janne Skarpeid Hermansen and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design wearing Gavida. I chose to style the pullover knitted in Bastøy, a silk and pelt wool mixture, by Oslo Mikro Spinneri hand dyed by Værbitt, with a wine red Wolford skirt and red shoes. Janne expertly wrapped my silk scarf around Emmalin’s head.  The pullover is knitted using a 4 mm/US 6 needle in pieces and with a 20 stitches and 30 rows in Stockinette stitch measuring 10 cm/4″ square. Emmalin is wearing size S with a 100 cm/39.25″ with 17 cm/6.75″ positive ease, but the pattern is graded in sizes XS to 5XL, with a bust circumference of 92 to 172 cm/36.25 to 64.5″.The cable that I have placed on the bottom of each sleeve and at the top of the front is also at the bottom of the back. It is the very same cable – made by Devorgilla I used on my Armas dress made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.I suggested to photographer Eivind Røhne that we photograph the sweater with the corten steel wall with the Bøler kirke inscription. Due to the strong sunlight we could not photograph it in full length there hence a couple of photos were taken in the window corner too.Named after the God of the forge is this fitted pullover adorned with a crest like cable at the top of the front, at the bottom of the back and at the cuff of both sleeves. The rest of the sweater is worked in stockinette stitch to allow the cable to shine. Gavida is worked in pieces for the ultimate fit with a crew neck that ends in a double neckband in rib. It is knitted in the divine Bastøy – a silk and pelt wool mixture – by Oslo Mikrospinneri, hand dyed by Værbitt.

The English and Norwegian pattern will be released after the test knitting that begins on the 13th of February.
