I am pleased to finally show you the magnificent photos Eivind Røhne took of gorgeous model Alexandria Eissinger, with hair & make up by Jens J. Wiker and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, wearing the Inverness Sweater over a tulle petticoat by Judith Bech Design at Villa Malla in early June. The pattern was first published in Interweave Knits Winter 2016, last October, and the rights have now reverted to me. The English pattern will be published on Ravelry and on Loveknitting shortly, while the Norwegian pattern will be published in the magazine Familien at a later date.
I decided to style the sweater with the Judith Bech’s tulle petticoat for the added drama it gives, and thought the beach was the perfect neutral back drop. I love the result and working with this amazing team. The image above is the one that stuck in my mind. We had a wonderful day, chasing the bright sun.
Here is my introduction to the pattern: My classic aran sweater has a becoming a-line shape with a twisted rib introducing the twisted long cables with its dividers, ray of honey and seed stitch side panels. Knitted in the round from the bottom and up with modified dropped shoulder and a round neck with a double twisted rib.
The sample is knitted in Plymouth Yarn Galway Worsted with 192 meters/210 yards on each 100 g skein and using a 4 mm/US 6 needle. The gauge is 20 stitches and 28 rounds in stockinette stitch. The a-line sweater is worked from the bottom and up. The body and sleeves are worked in the round up to the armhole, then flat to the final bind off.
I was so delighted to be selected to be part of the Classics issue with my Inverness Sweater, you can read more about here: www.marveng-puckett.com/wordpress/. I do hope you like both sets of photos as much as I do!
