Photoshoot at Galleri Würth: Nyoko

The dress Nyoko – made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk – looked stunning on model Emmalin Williams, with make-up & hair by Hina Suleman, captured by Eivind Røhne at Galleri Würth, outside of Oslo back in June. I decided to style the dress with a silk scarf at the neck, a statement necklace by Monies and brown wedge boots by Monica Stålvang. I asked Emmalin to choose between brown or black boots, and she chose brown (just as I had done). Hina perfectly pleated her hair to match the cables, see the bottom photo!   Yarn kits with English or Norwegian pattern will be available directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk later this month, while the individual pattern will soon be published on Ravelry and on LoveCrafts as the test knit is soon over.Nyoko is Japanese for gem, which suit the cables – in the sides and on the collar – on this A-line dress with set-in sleeves. The remaining dress is worked in stockinette stitch to make the cables stand out and worked in the round to the armholes, then flat to the shoulders. Nyoko is knitted in the airy Norwegian combed wool yarn Ask from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.Emmalin is wearing size Small with 8 cm/3.25” positive ease and stands 170 cm/5’7” tall. The pattern has been graded from size XS to 5XL with a bust circumference of 85 to 161 cm/33.5 to 63.5″. Above you see her holding a small ball of the Ask yarn used to knit the dress.The dress is worked in the round to the armhole, then back and forth separately to the shoulders. The body and the shoulders are shaped for a better fit. A circular needle is used due to the large stitch number. As always, Nyoko came alive for me when I saw these beautiful photos, thank you so much to my wonderful team!
