Jari Pattern Released

I am thrilled to release the Jari pattern made in Ask for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The test knit has come to an end with some stunning results and a corrected pattern. Jari was worn by beautiful model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair styling by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by photographer Wenche Hoel-Knai at our photoshoot at Sentralen in Oslo back in December. Yarn kits with either an English or a Norwegian pattern are available directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, while the single pattern is on sale in English on Ravelry. The updated Norwegian pattern will be added shortly and both languages will also be available on LoveCrafts. Continue reading

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Cable Round Sweater

I selected another two old design to photograph again on our last photoshoot in December at Sentralen in Oslo. The first of these is the Cable Round Sweater knitted in Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk Tinde pelt wool that was first released in August 2014. I have limited use of the photos as the model was from an agency, hence the need for new photos. Brilliant photographer Wenche Hoel-Knai captured model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, wearing the Cable Round Sweater with and without the cowl.

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Laplace

You have already seen some of the photos of Laplace – the Palazzo Pants – worn together with Khayam by model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, photographed by Wenche Hoel-Knai at Sentralen back in December, but you have not seen any details of the trousers yet. So here they are. I have finished the pattern and shortened the inside leg length as well as the crotch length. Continue reading

Fulla Cardigan in The Knitter issue 175

My first design made for the British magazine “The Knitter”, Fulla Cardigan knitted in Felted Tweed, is published in issue 175. I sent in my design submission back in December 2020 and chose the intoxicating pastels mood board for Spring/Summer 2021 as my inspiration source. The cover design is the Kew Gardens Cardigan by Emma Vining, but my name does appear at the bottom. Below you can read the introduction to my design. Continue reading

Godi Pattern Released

The test knit of Godi, made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, has come to an end with some stunning versions as a result. My test knitters have corrected and improved the pattern, hence it has been released in English on Ravelry. The Norwegian pattern will be added shortly and both languages will be available on LoveCrafts too. Yarn kits with either an English or a Norwegian pattern can be bought directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The design looked fantastic on model Aksa Mortensen, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and ring by Kaja Gjedebo Design.

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Khayam

 The time has come to show you how stunning Khayam – worn together with Laplace -looked on Model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, photographed by Wenche Hoel-Knai at Sentralen back in December. Named after the mathematician Omar Khayyam who worked on problems of Algebra is this long slightly oversized jacket with a cable collar and long cuffs. The remaining parts are knitted in stockinette stitch to make the cable stand out. A double belt in stockinette stitch highlights the beginning of the collar. Khayam is worked in pieces for the ultimate fit and made to be worn with the Laplace trousers as a set. Both are knitted in the Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply with a crepe construction.

New Design: Laplace

Last out in the series of new designs photographed last December, is Laplace. The Palazzo Pants came before the matching Khayam jacket in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply. Brilliant sample knitter Grete Jenssen, aka ma9 on Ravelry, worked the parts for the wide-legged long trousers using a 3.75 mm/US 5 needle and a 24 stitches in stockinette stitch gauge measuring 10 cm/4″ across. Laplace is high-waisted and has side pockets with the opening in between the two cable repeats than run along the leg. I believe the pants could easily be turned into culottes by shortening the legs and I wonder if any of my test knitters will do this. Continue reading

New Design: Khayam

My new jacket design Khayam is part of a set and was actually made after the matching trousers called Laplace. I am showing you Khayam first as I have yet to grade and finish the Laplace pattern. The sample jacket was beautifully knitted by Grete Jenssen, aka ma9 on Ravelry, for me. Named after the mathematician Omar Khayyam who worked on problems of Algebra is this long slightly oversized jacket with a cable collar and long cuffs. The remaining parts are knitted in stockinette stitch to make the cable stand out. A double belt in stockinette stitch highlights the beginning of the collar. Khayam is worked in pieces for the ultimate fit and made to be worn with the Laplace trousers as a set. Both are knitted in the Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply with a crepe construction.
