My new design, Biondo Scarf, has been released in English on Ravelry and Loveknitting. The Norwegian pattern will be printed in Familien at a later date. The pattern has been test knitted and you can see the four completed ones on Ravelry. The reversible scarf, that can be used as a shawl was worn by Silje Andresen/Team Models, with hair & makeup by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, over Judith Bech’s divine silk skirt. The scene was brilliantly captured by Eivind Røhne at the National Museum – Architecture in late November last year.
Biondo – Italian for blond – scarf is reversible with a twisted stitch as a divider between each of the three cables. The stitch also work as a folding line, hence emphasises the more relaxed alternate side. The scarf is knitted in a divine silk and alpaca mixture for that lovely feel and sheen.
