Here is the last of the ten garments photographed in late November at the National Museum – Architecture; the Harding Cardigan. The English pattern was first published in Interweave Knits Summer 2016 and will be released on Ravelry with these new brilliant photos taken by Eivind Røhne at the beginning of May. The Norwegian pattern will be published in the magazine Familien at a later date. Model Silje Andresen/Team Models looked stunning in the cardigan worn over a pair of black pencil trouser and a black top. Her hair & makeup is by Sissel Fylling and you can glimpse the Ivy hanging earrings by Kaja Gjedebo Design.
Here is my introduction to the cardigan with the working title of Barr Cardigan: Allover telescope lattice gives this straight long cardigan a textural feel. An open rib cable cord collar, knitted separately, adds a modern look to the cardigan. Wear it open or close it with a shawl pin. The cardigan is named after the cabled rib cord pattern’s creator; Lynne Barr. The body is knitted straight from the bottom and up in parts with extra ease for comfort, while the sleeves are knitted in the round.
I suggested the rustic Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and editor Meghan Babin agreed with my choice and suggested the shade Foothills. Shelter is made of 100% wool with 128 meters/140 yards on each 100 gram skein. The gauge is: 22 stitches and 27 rows = 10 cm/4″ in Telescope Lattice pattern; 26 stitches and 18 rows = 10 cm/4″ in Cabled Rib Cord pattern. The sample was knitted using 4.5 mm/US 7 needle.
The open cable pattern I wanted for the collar, is the Cabled Rib Cord from “Reversible Knitting: 50 Brand New Groundbreaking Patterns. The allover Telescope Lattice is fun to knit and not as time consuming as it looks. The cardigan pattern is available in 6 sizes with a bust circumference of 85 (90, 96, 106, 114, 123) cm/33.5 (35.5, 38, 41.5, 45, 48.5)”.
Yes, of course I had to pick a couple of photos with the divine boots you might recognise by now: Benedetta black by Monica Stålvang. Not only does it give you a better idea of the full length of the cardigan it also shows off the cloister next to the Fehn Pavilion at National Museum – Architecture even better.
Above is the last photo of the Harding Cardigan and from this recent photoshoot. But new designs are in the works, as always.
