Corra Pattern Released

The test knit of Corra, made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, has come to an end, and the pattern has been corrected as well as improved. I am delighted that the pattern is now available in both Norwegian and English in my Ravelry store, and in English on Loveknitting. A yarn kit with Norwegian pattern is available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. My test knitters did a wonderful job correcting and improving the pattern, and their wonderful versions can be seen on Ravelry. I will soon share a few versions here. I loved seeing Emma Ross wear it at the Vigeland Museum last November. Sissel Fylling did her hair and make up. The stunning jewellery is by Kaja Gjedebo Design. Eivind Røhne captured it all.

This elaborately cabled pullover with slightly fitted waist is named after the Prophecy Goddess. Two large cable panels are divided by a small cable that ends in a Henley neck, framed with an I-cord. Unlike the body the sleeves only have two small cables surrounded by stockinette stitch, so all the focus is on the body. Corra is knitted in pieces in the divine Hillesvåg Tinde.
