Embrae Cardigan Pattern Released

Today, I am at Bøler Kirke/ Church in Oslo having my next photoshoot. I am very excited and cannot wait to see my new designs come alive. But I will tell you a lot more about that later. In the meantime, here is another pattern I have released in English on Ravelry and on Loveknitting after a test knit in my group: Embrae. You can see longer versions, one version with beads and many versions in different colours on the pattern page on Ravelry. The sample knitted in the gorgeous hand dyed Anzula, Squishy was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne worn by Silje Andresen/Team Models with hair and makeup by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design at the National Museum – Architecture. Here is my introduction to the pattern:  Embrae, a fitted cardigan with a lace collar, is like a flowery embrace. A lacy leaf pattern adorns the sleeves and the back of the cardigan. The lattice at the center of the lace pattern continues on each side of it and covers the collar. The collar can be worn flat or overlapping and pinned together or folded.
