Varun Pattern Released

I am thrilled to announce that the Varun pattern has been released after a successful test knitting in my Ravelry group. My test knitters did a wonderful job and I look forward to sharing some of their result here later. The sample pullover and cowl is worked in the divine hand dyed Norne Yarn DK – Merino/Silk/Yak. Above you see it worn by the gorgeous Aksa Mortensen, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by Eivind Røhne at Hvalstrand Bad back in May. The English and Norwegian pattern is available on Ravelry and will shortly be available on LoveCrafts too.

Varun is an A-line pullover with a cable panel that travels across the front and the back like a sash, that signifies a position not necessarily a royal one but a secret one. Varun is Norse for secret keeper. The cable sash meets on top of the left shoulder and at the right hip, like a sash. To highlight this the right sleeve has a cable cuff, while the left sleeve has two small cables running along it next to stockinette stitches. Garter stitches play along the seams on all the parts. Varun ends in an I-cord bind off neck but can be dressed up with a cable cowl, both are knitted in the divine hand dyed Norne Yarn DK – Merino/Silk/Yak.

Notes: The pullover is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed. The cable move is worked at the same time as the A-line shaping and the armhole shaping. The cable cowl is knitted back and forth and grafted together.

Shortening note: If you want to shorten the sweater with 5 cm/2”, work either 8 more cable moves on every 2nd row and 8 fewer every 4th row. Or work 8 of the cable moves on a WS row in addition to the RS row ones and 8 fewer on every 2nd row. If necessary, to get the cable to the final position, you can also work 2 fewer rows after the Gather cable row.
