At last I am ready to show you some of the brilliant photos that Eivind Røhne took of model Emmalin Williams, with make-up & hair by Hina Suleman and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, wearing the Irina Pullover at Galleri Würth, just outside of Oslo in June.
The sweater was made for Interweave’s knit.wear Spring/Summer 2016 issue and has been photographed twice before; firstly by Harper Point Photography and secondly by Eivind Røhne back in 2016 at the Arkitektmuseet with model Silje Andresen/Team Models. This time I chose to style it with cream coloured silk trousers and a long silk shirt beneath.
Named after the beautiful Russian ballerina Irina Baronova, is this fitted pullover with elegant cables swooning across it in panels with garter stitch dividers for shaping. Timeless, knitted in the round from the bottom up to the armholes then flat to soft square neckline and shoulders. The sleeves are also knitted in the round, long to adorn the hands and set in. A divine sky-blue color, and luscious texture was made by combining Rowan Felted Tweed with Rowan Kidsilk Haze.
The Irina Pullover is knitted using a 4 mm/US 6 needle and a 18 stitches and 30 rounds in garter stitch using 1 strand of each yarn held together gauge, measuring 10 cm/4” square after blocking.
The Irina Pullover pattern has been revised and is available in sizes XS to 2XL with a bust & bottom circumference of 77 to 122 cm/30.25 to 48″ in my Ravelry Store and on LoveCrafts. Thank you to my amazing team for this wonderful result!
