Photoshoot at Galleri Würth: Cavallo

I loved seeing gorgeous model Emmalin Williams, with make-up & hair by Hina Suleman and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, wearing my old design Cavallo, captured by Eivind Røhne at Galleri Würth, outside of Oslo back in June. The pattern was released back in 2017, but I wanted to photograph again as the model is from an agency hence with restricted use. So, this time I chose a different styling of Cavallo, cream coloured silk trousers instead of slim black trousers.

A playful horseshoe cable adorns the body of this a-line sweater with a rounded hem. The Henley neck crowns the pullover and begins as a v-neck but ends a round neck, following the shape of the cable itself. The sleeves have been given symmetrical check patterns giving the appearance of cables. All parts ends in an I-cord bind off, and have garter stitches to mark the sides. Cavallo means horse in Italian and suits the horseshoe cable.

The sample is knitted in the now discontinued Dale Pure Eco Wool – a wool and alpaca mixture – but can be replaced by Dale Merino 22 (100% merino, 50 gram, 112 meters/122 yards) or another DK yarn with a gauge of 21 stitches and 30 rows in Stockinette stitch using a 4 mm/US 6 needle measuring 10 cm/4″ square.

All parts are worked back and forth, then seamed. Each side on all parts has a few garter stitches as a side band.
Cavallo is graded in sizes XS to 2XL with a bust circumference of 84 to 126 cm/35.5 to 49.5″. The pattern has been revised and is available in both English & Norwegian in my Ravelry Store. It will be added to LoveCrafts too.
