Blue Shimmer Pullover - Blå Skimmer

Blue Shimmer (Blå Skimmer) was designed by Anna-Lisa Mannheimer Lunn in 1947 and was the most popular design produced by Bohus Stickning. The design was recreated in 1999 by Solveig Gustafsson of SOLsilke. In 2016 Pernille Silfverberg introduced a new variation - Blue Shimmer Dark with a medium blue background color.

Kit currently available from AngoraGarnet using historically accurate colors and gauge.

Disambiguation:
There are two authorized reproductions of this original Bohus Stickning design. One is from the book Poems of Color, and the one was reproduced by SOLsilke and is now produced by AngoraGarnet. The two reproductions are visually similar, but use different weights of yarn, gauges, stitch counts, construction and directions, so they are not interchangable. To avoid confusion, here is a comparison of the two versions:

              Poems of Color    SOLsilke/AngoraGarnet
Yarn          Sport / 5 ply         Lace / 2 ply
Gauge            7/inch              8.25/inch 
Stitch count    size 44               size 44
   Neck band      120                   154
   Bust           308                   352
   Waist          308                   328
Shape           circular            yoke circular
                                 Body & sleeves flat

These two versions, from Poems of Color and from SOLsilke/AngoraGarnet, are different patterns, and should be kept separate.
