O-Chem Tunic Pattern Released

The O-Chem Tunic pattern rights have reverted to me and I have released the pattern in English my Ravelry store with new photographs taken of the gorgeous Kaja Kvernbakken,  with make-up & hair by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, taken by Eivind Røhne at the Oslofjord Museum in May. The pattern was first published in Interweave Knits Winter 2019 and initially photographed by Harper Point Photography. The Norwegian pattern has been sold to the magazine Familien and will be printed at a later date. Below is my introduction to the pattern and its details.

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.
