Godi Pattern Released

The test knit of Godi, made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, has come to an end with some stunning versions as a result. My test knitters have corrected and improved the pattern, hence it has been released in English on Ravelry. The Norwegian pattern will be added shortly and both languages will be available on LoveCrafts too. Yarn kits with either an English or a Norwegian pattern can be bought directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The design looked fantastic on model Aksa Mortensen, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and ring by Kaja Gjedebo Design. Brilliant Photographer Eivind Røhne captured these photos at Hvalstrand Bad back in May last year.

Godi, Norse for chiefton, is a long A-line vest with vents and a high collar that can be folded down or left to stand tall. The all over pattern is the ray of honey with a few stitches in reverse stocking stitch. A long twisted rib makes up the vent, while a short rib is worked around each armhole. Wear it with a belt if you wish. Godi is knitted in the bouncy Sølje pelt wool from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
