The test knit of Ime is over and several stunning versions of it have been made by my very skilled test knitters. So, I have released the English pattern in my Ravelry Store, while yarn kits are available directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The Norwegian pattern will be added shortly. Named Ime, of Greenlandic decent, is this straight sweater worked in rib with plenty of positive ease and cables that make a wide V-neck.
Two center cable begin at the bottom of both front and back while the next cables are knitted at the same time as the armholes are shaped. The sleeves, on the other hand, are worked only in rib. The body ends in a double ribbed neckband. Make the cowl if you want a collar to crown the sweater. Ime is knitted in pieces in the airy Ask by Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
In these photos you see Ime worn by the gorgeous Emmalin Williams, with make-up & hair by Janne Skarpeid Hermansen and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by Wenche Hoel-Knai at her old studio at Ensjø in Oslo, last December.
The pullover is worked back and forth in separate pieces, then turned inside out and seamed. The neckband is worked in the round and double. The cowl is worked in rib in the round and has one wide and one narrow end.
The sample sweater was brilliantly knitted using a 3.5 mm/US 4 needle and a 22 stitches and 30 rows gauge in Stockinette stitch by Airin H. Hansen. Emmalin is wearing size XS/S with a 112 cm/44″ bust circumference, with 29 cm/11.5” positive ease.
I chose to style the pullover with a wine red Woolford skirt and shoes by Monica Stålvang. Here is a full view of the outfit. The English and the Norwegian pattern will also soon be available on LoveCrafts.
