Edia Pattern Released

The Edia test knit has come to an end and I am happy to release the pattern in my Ravelry store. The test knitters did a brilliant job improving and correcting the pattern. I will share some of their stunning versions here on my blog later. Edia was made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk and is knitted in their divine Tinde pelt wool yarn using a 3.5 mm/US 4 needle with a 21 stitches and 30 rows measuring 10 cm/4″ gauge. Yarn kits with either Norwegian or English pattern is available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. Above you can see the sample size Small worn by the beautiful Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Erica Poppe and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, photographed by Eivind Røhne at Mortensrud Church last November.

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.
