Vaga Pattern Published

Finally, I have released the English pattern of Vaga. The test knit is completed and there are so many stunning versions of it to look at on the pattern page. My test knitters have done an excellent job improving and correcting the pattern. Barbara Khouri did the final technical edit of the pattern and made the schematic for me. Vaga was modelled by the gorgeous Emma Ross with hair & make up by Sissel Fylling in addition to jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, and brilliantly captured by photographer Eivind Røhne at Villa Malla, late in May. The English pattern is available at Ravelry and Loveknitting, while the Norwegian pattern is printed in the special magazine Familien Høststrikk, on sale now.

Named after the Celtic Goddess of the River Wye is this pullover with cables that runs over the body and sleeves. A saddle shoulder allows the swing cable to continue to the neck with its twisted rib ending. The pullover is slightly shaped for the waist and knitted in the gorgeous The Fibre Co. Cumbria.
