Gocce Pattern Released

I am thrilled to release my Gocce cardigan and cowl in both English and Norwegian, after a successful test knitting. As usual my test knitters did an excellent job of improving and correcting the pattern. You can see all their wonderful versions on the Ravelry pattern page. The English and Norwegian pattern is now available on Ravelry and LoveCrafts. Above you see model Emma Ross wearing Gocce, with make-up & hair by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design. She was brilliantly captured by photographer Eivind Røhne at the Oslofjord Museum at Vollen in Asker, outside of Oslo, in May. Below is the introduction to the pattern.

The poetic introduction to Shibui Knits’ Rain, a stunning chainette cotton yarn, inspired the name choice of this fitted summery lace cardigan. ”Fleeting drops fall…” not unlike the lace pattern on this jacket. Gocce is Italian for drops and selected to give this v-neck cardigan the sophistication it deserves. The jacket is knitted in pieces for the ultimate fit and seamed. A cowl crowns the cardigan and can be worn loose or twice around your neck.
