Bubala Pattern Released

Bubala, made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk in their divine Sølje pelt wool yarn, is another pattern I released earlier this year after a successful test knit. You can see a number of the brilliant results on the pattern page on Ravelry. I had fantastic help improving and correcting the pattern. Here you see Bubala with the v-neck at the back worn by the gorgeous Olivia Lindtein, with hair & make-up by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by Eivind Røhne at Bøler Church back in May 2020. Yarn kits with either an English or a Norwegian pattern is available directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The individual pattern in both English and Norwegian is available in my Ravelry Store and on LoveCrafts.

Named Bubala Yiddish for close to one’s heart is this cabled pullover with bobbles. A deep v-neck that can be worn on the front or on the back, split the cable into two single cables. The same single cable adorn the sleeve. Ribbing frame the cables in the sides and make the sweater figure hugging. The v-neck ends in an I-cord bind-off. Bubala is knitted in the bouncy Sølje pelt wool from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
