Tweed Jacket Pattern Released

The number of request for the pattern in English, made me have the Tweed Jacket from my Norwegian knitting book “To rett, en vrang. Designstrikk” (only translated into Finnish) photographed again and I also reviewed of the pattern. My American Technical Editor Barbara Khouri has checked it, and I am happy to say that it has been released on Ravelry with new fantastic photos by Eivind Røhne at the Vigeland Museum of model Emma Ross with hair & make up by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design as well as a skirt by Judith Bech.

A Tweed jacket inspired by Christopher Kane’s elegant tweed version. My version has sleeves in stranded colourwork in stockinette stitch as a contrast to the tweed pattern made with slipped stitches on the body and a fitted waist. The tweed jacket has been given a vintage look, by using the fine Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk Alv held double.
