Caravay Pattern Released

Caravay is another pattern I released earlier this spring after a successful test knitting. The oversized sweater was made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, knitted in Tinde. On the cover you can see it worn by the gorgeous Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by Eivind Røhne at Bøler Church in Oslo, last spring. Yarn kits with either an English or a Norwegian pattern is available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, while the individual pattern is available in my Ravelry Store or on LoveCrafts.

Named after the herb, which seeds look like this all-over domed check pattern, is this oversized pullover. Caravay begins and ends in a broken rib. The crowing collar is worked double and folded down to the wrong side and attached. A ribbing detail in the side separate the pieces that are knitted in pieces and seamed. Wear it with or without a belt. Caravay is knitted in the stunning pelt wool yarn from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, called Tinde.
