The test knit of Suli is coming to an end and I have released the English pattern on Ravelry. The Norwegian pattern has been updated and both are available to buy on Ravelry and on Loveknitting. My amazing test knitters have corrected and improved the pattern. Some of them also decided to modify the collar and make it shorter or with buttons at the end instead of a seam. Suli is part of the collection I have made in collaboration with Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. Yarn kits are available at www.ull.no. Suli was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne, worn by Alexandria Eissinger with hair & makeup by Jens J. Wiker as well as jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design. Do take a look at the finished versions at Ravelry.
Suli is Eskimo for more, ideal for this cardigan with a loop collar that you can drape as you please, adorned with a lace pattern on center back, sleeve and collar. The loop collar can be worn loose, folded once behind the neck or twice in front or three times around the neck in a ballerina style. A fake garter stitch seam adds a bit of structure to this cardigan knitted in the beautiful Sølje.
Suli pattern is available in English and in Norwegian (på norsk).
