The time has come to share the brilliant photos Eivind Røhne took of model Olivia Lindtein, with hair & make-up by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, at out second photoshoot at Bøler Kirke – a community church by HBA Arkitekter completed in 2011 – at the end of May. Olivia is wearing the pullover – or tee if you like – Skyla knitted in the hand dyed Dye Dye Done, Pure Sport, the new design first out in this series of pictures. Both the English and the Norwegian pattern is available on Ravelry and also on LoveCrafts. I choose to style this sweater and cowl with my cream coloured silk slacks. In times of order, it was the third garment we photographed because I wanted to photograph it outside by the window and we had to wait for the shadow to come around to the corner we wanted as the backdrop.
Kaja arrived at the church from her nearby home just in time for Olivia to borrow her Eo Ipso Armring and earrings. I had already tried my Monies statement jewellery, while waiting for Kaja, and Sissel was adjusting Olivia’s pony tail. The bracelet looked way too heavy on her slim wrist, in fact so heavy that it looked like the weight would topple her, Sissel joked. See the situation photo here: Behind the Scenes Photoshoot at Bøler Church May 2020.
Skyla is a cabled a-line pullover with short sleeves, adorned with two central mirrored cables divided by twisted stitches. The small cables, created by Devorgilla, run towards each shoulder and make a v-shaped panel of reverse stockinette stitch at the center. The sweater ends in a casual wide rounded neck. To show off the stunning hand dyed Pure Sport yarn by Dye Dye Done, the sides are all in stockinette stitch. Skyla is knitted in pieces for the ultimate fit and has a cowl that can be worn as a collar.
The sample was perfectly knitted by sample knitter Grete Jenssen, aka ma9 on Ravelry, using a 3 mm/US 2.5 needle and a gauge of 25 sts and 32 rows in stockinette stitch measuring 10 cm/4″ square.
Olivia is wearing the Skyla sample in size S with a bust circumference of 90 cm/35.5” with + 7 cm/2.75” ease. I have graded the pattern from sizes XS to 5XL with bust circumferences of 82 to 164 cm/32.5 to 64.5″. I loved seeing Skyla worn by Olivia and want to thank my amazing team for these photos!
