I’m infatuated with the way colors influence each other. With how the sunset and sunrise reflect in the sea, with a landscape seen from an airplane and with fabric or yarn in a disorganized piles. The cardigan is inspired by the sun and heat of the the Bosporus strait near Istanbul, and the many Turkish Kilim rugs. This is a project for the advanced knitter, who has experience with stranded knitting and pattern reading.

Jeg er betaget af farvernes påvirkning, hvordan en sol op- og nedgang spejler sig i havet, et landskab set fra et fly eller stof og garn, der ligger i ”uorden”. Cardiganen her er inspireret af solen og varmen over Bosporusstrædet ved Istanbul, samt de mange tyrkiske Kelimtæpper.
