Ardra Pattern Released

The test knit of Ardra has been completed and you can see a number of lovely versions on the Ravelry pattern page. Thank you to all my test knitters who corrected and improved the pattern. Ardra was made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk in the divine Sølje Peltwool. I choose the shade Cognac, since I knew how well it would match gorgeous modell Emma Ross’ hair. Photographer Eivind Røhne captured this shot of Em, with hair & makeup by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, at Bøler Church, last autumn.

Round knot cables run along the body of this a-line pullover with a slightly longer back. Only one cable adorns each sleeve. The body is worked in the round and ends in a round neck with an I-cord bind-off. A false seam on the sides make the fit better. Ardra is Celtic and means noble.
