English (Norwegian notes below)
Frida Kahlo’s colorful and maximalistic approach to life and the arts is a huge source of inspiration for
designers everywhere. The idea for this sweater came to me as I was flicking through a series of her self portaits. The sharp contrasts, the portrayal of strong, but vulnurable women, and nature’s standing in her works, made me want to design a piece in tribute to her universe.
Colorful poppies are recurrant in Kahlo’s iconic hairrpieces, and were therefore given a prominent place in my design.

Construction
Oh Frida is knitted top-down. The back is knitted back and forth, making increases to the front and
shaping the neckline. You then go on to working in the round, with raglan increases. Body and sleeves are separated and knitted to your preferred length. Finally the neckline is knitted and both the ribbing here and on the sleeves are folded and sewn to the inside.

Norsk:

Frida Kahlo er med sin fargerike og maksimalistiske fremtoning en evig kilde til inspirasjon. Jeg fikk ideen til denne genseren da jeg bladde meg gjennom en serie av hennes selvportretter. De skarpe kontrastene, de sterke, men sårbare kvinneskikkelsene, og naturens plass i hennes verker ga meg lyst til å lage et design som hyllet Fridas univers. Valmuen er gjenganger i hennes ikoniske hårpynt, og måtte derfor ha en fremtredende plass også i mitt design.
