Yaelle Pattern Released

I am so thrilled to release my Yaelle pattern in both English and Norwegian after a successful test knit. Yaelle is made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk and knitted in the divine Tinde pelt wool yarn, using a 3.5 mm/US 4 needle, in the Cognac shade. The cover shows model Olivia Lindtein wearing size S, with make-up & hair by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne at Bøler Church back in May. Yaelle is available in my Ravelry store in sizes XS to 5XL with a bust circumference of 128 to 192 cm/50.5 to 75.5″. On the pattern page you can see some of my test knitters’ fantastic results. Yaelle is also available as a yarn kit with either English or Norwegian pattern directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

Yaelle is a high-low pullover with an all over check pattern, swinging side panels and pockets. Named after Hebrew for the mountain goat, as it can take you everywhere. The pullover ends in a high loose turtle neck collar. Yaelle’s side panels are picked up and knitted after the side seams are done. The pockets are knitted at the same time as the front, including the pocket band and the lining. Wear Yaelle as you like; hanging loose or gathered with a belt or with a shawl pin at the front. The pullover is knitted in the pelt wool yarn Tinde with lustre from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
