The skirt Rebine, designed for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, is out next in my series from the photoshoot at Mortensrud Church . The pencil skirt was made to as part of the set to be worn together with Jendine, both are knitted in Tinde pelt wool yarn, but it can easily be worn on its own. The gorgeous model Olivia Lindtein certainly convinced me of that. Here she is, with hair & make-up by Erica Poppe and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, wearing size Small as a party outfit with boots from Monica Stålvang, brilliantly captured by Eivind Røhne.
Rebine, an old Norwegian name, is a pencil skirt with an all over elegant cable pattern ending in a high waist. The skirt is shaped for the hip and the waist. Belt loops, inserted in each side seam, hold the skirt in place. Rebine is knitted in Tinde pelt wool by 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 Lys Marine 2125 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.
Above you see Rebine worn with the pullover Jendine. I have graded the Rebine pattern from sizes XS to 3XL with hip circumference of 86 to 132 cm/33.75 to 52)” and a waist circumference of 76 to 110 cm/30 to 43.25“. The skirt is worn with + 11 cm/4.25” ease on model who stands 167 cm/5’6” tall, while the intended ease is – 4 cm/1.5” to + 6 cm/2.25”. Olivia is ideally a size XS and not a size S.
The skirt is worked in pieces from the bottom and up. Make two belt straps to insert in the side seam. If you want to adjust the length of the skirt, remove up to 8 cm/3.25” or add an extra length before shaping the hip.
The English and Norwegian Rebine and Jendine pattern will be released after test knitting. Jendine begins 16th of March, while Rebine begins 6th of April in my Ravelry group. Yarn kits will soon be available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
