Aki Pattern Released

The next pattern I have released in English is Aki, made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The pullover has been test knitted in my Ravelry group and you can see the stunning results on the pattern page on Ravelry. The English pattern is available on Ravelry and on Loveknitting. Aki was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne, worn by Alexandria Eissinger with hair & makeup by Jens J. Wiker and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design at Ingierstrand Bad, late May. Here is my introduction to the pattern: Round cables, reminiscent of antic coins hence the name Aki; Eskimo for value, adorn this a-line pullover with vents at the bottom. The pullover is crowned with a double collar with cables and garter stitches. The body is worked in two parts, while the sleeves are knitted in the round, all parts with garter stitch in the sides. Aki is knitted in a soft heather pink in the luscious Sølje from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
