Milana Pattern Released

Norne Yarn, Merino Silk Yak DK in Volva is the divine yarn that my design Milana is knitted in. It has a lovely sheen to it and is ever so soft to wear. Thank you, Tuva for sponsoring yarn to this design! The English and Norwegian pattern is now released on Ravelry, after a successful test knitting in my group. I look forward to showing you some of the wonderful versions that were made! The sample, knitted by Grete Jenssen – aka ma9 on Ravelry – was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne, worn by the gorgeous Olivia Lindtein, with hair & make-up by Sissel Fylling.

Named after the sophisticated city of Milan in Italy, is this pullover with a high rib, creating a narrower waist. Two center cables travel towards the shoulder on the body with all their texture; Seed stitch, twisted stitch rib and cables. While a narrower matching cable adorn the sleeve with a panel of seed stitch. Milana is knitted in pieces for the ultimate fit and ends in a crew neck. A separate cowl can be worn as a crowning collar. The hand dyed DK – Merino/Silk/Yak yarn from Norne Yarn makes the cables pop and the texture shine in all its glory.
