Kori Pattern Released

The test knit of my design Kori is completed and the English version of the pattern is available on Ravelry and on Loveknitting. Kori is old Norse and means perfect; Kori is the result of a complex mathematical equation that cannot be calculated by the human mind. Just as the intricate cable that crowns this tted jacket. The intricate cable crossings are lled by seed stitch, hence seed stitch bands and playful tucks at the bottom. The jacket has a shawl collar and ends in I-cord bind off. It is knitted in parts to give extra shape in the beautiful Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK. The Norwegian pattern was first published in Familien Strikk in August 2016. Brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne, modelled by Alexandria Eissinger/Nordic Model Agency with hair & makeup by Jens J. Wiker and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, over a skirt by Judith Bech Design.
