Kolga Pattern Released

I have been looking forward to releasing the Kolga pattern, with a new silhouette I have made. My test knitters did a wonderful job improving and correcting the pattern. Hence the pattern is available in both English and in Norwegian in my Ravelry Store and shortly on LoveCrafts. Kolga was brilliantly photographed by Eivind Røhne at Hvalstrand Bad last summer. The stunning model was Aksa Mortensen, with hair & make-up by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design.

Kolga is Norse for a cool wave, like the one created by the Honeycomb cable pattern on this pullover. The A-line front moves the side seam and vent backwards, making it flow like waves. Kolga is knitted in the divine hand dyed Walk Collection Merino Sport yarn, in pieces and seamed for the ultimate fit. A folded down cowl gives the pullover a collar, while a standing cowl warms your neck.
