Here is the last series of photos from the Oslofjord Museum for now, it is of the O-Chem Tunic designed for Interweave Knits Winter 2019 worn by the gorgeous Kaja Kvernbakken, with hair & makeup by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, brilliantly captured next to the corten steel wall by Eivind Røhne. I decided to style the O-Chem Tunic with a burgundy Wolford tube skirt since the colours matched so well and with my red pair of Amanda Skovgaard shoes.
The O-Chem Tunic features a striking central panel of hexagonal cables inspired by organic chemisty compounds. For visual balance with the three cables in the body, the sleeves have one main cable running down the arm, and all the cables in the sweater are framed with rope cables. The sweater sports a cozy standing collar and side vents in the rib at the bottom for a relaxed fit.
The O-Chem Tunic is knitted in Tahki Yarns, Alden made in 50% merino wool, 25% alpaca, 25% acryl, with 230 meters/250 yards on each 50 gram ball. The sample is knitted in 06 Wine and only takes 7 balls. The gauge is 20 stitches and 30 rows in stockinette stitch using 3.75 mm/US 5 measures 10 cm/4” square.
The O-Chem Tunic sample I knitted was returned from Interweave in the US, so that I could photograph it again and release the pattern, when the rights returned to me after a year.
I have graded this from size XS to 2XL with a bust circumference of 81 cm/32 to 124 cm/49″. The sample in size Medium has a 94 cm/37” bust circumference and is worn with + 8 cm/3.25” ease on the model. I loved seeing this pullover on Kaja! I am so proud to have such a fabulous team to work with! Thank you!
