The last Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk design of the four is Edia which has the same cable as the Gyro dress but is knitted in the darker colour of Tinde pelt wool yarn and made into an oversized pullover. The gorgeous Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Erica Poppe and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, looked stunning in the size Small sample, photographed by Eivind Røhne last November at Mortensrud Church in Oslo. Olivia wore it with 61 cm/24″ of positive ease.
Edia is an oversized sweater with a central cable panel, vent in the sides and a crew neck crowned by an I-cord bind off. The pullover has dropped shoulders and simple cables on the sleeves. Edia is an old Norwegian female name fitting for this relaxed sweater knitted in the gorgeous pelt wool yarn Tinde from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
The yarn Tinde pelsull is made of 100% pelt wool with 260 meters/284 yards on each 100 gram skein. The sample is knitted in Burgunderlilla 2131 with a gauge of 21 sts and 30 rows in st st, after blocking measures 10 cm/4” square using 3.5 mm/US 4 needle. The sweater is worked back and forth in pieces and seamed. The neck is deeper on the front, than on the back.
I have graded the pattern in sizes XS to 3XL with a bust circumference of 136 to 184 cm/53.5 to 72.5″. Intended ease is + 46-56 cm/18-22″. The English and Norwegian Edia pattern will be released after test knitting which begins on the 18th of May in my Ravelry group. Yarn kits will soon be available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
