Shalana Pattern Released

shalana-coverStrikke 2016 at Hadeland Glassverk ended 30. October and the 5 garments I exhibited have been returned to me. Among them the pullover Shalana, knitted in the beautiful colour Avocado in Rowan Felted Tweed DK. Even the test knit has finished so I have released the English pattern on both Ravelry and on Loveknitting. The Norwegian pattern was published in Familien Strikk 2016 in August, and is still available to order from them. The sample was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne, worn by Alexandria Eissinger/Nordic Model Agency with hair & make up by Jens J. Wiker and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, at Villa Malla in early June.

SHALANA                                                                                                                                 Sand Cables that travel from the center towards each shoulder dominate this fitted sweater with a rounded  boat neck. The center panel of double seed stitch is framed and increases in size with the cable move. On the long sleeves the cables dominate. Named after the most powerful spirit Shalana.
