Interpretations Vol. 7 is here! This 7th volume of the truly heartfelt collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.

The year 2020 added a layer of different circumstances to the book. The photographs were taken on the same day, but on opposite corners of the world; Joji’s in Argentina by Charly Barros and Veera’s in Finland by Jonna Jolkin.

Like a ray of light, a beam of sunshine, I love all things radiant. I simply adore the early morning light that comes through my bedroom window and makes me smile, just like I love the scorching midday rays on the beach. In the Sunbeam Sweater the light is captured in the colors and in the bold, modular colorwork.

This sweater is a new take on the circular yoke sweater, unusual in its short rows and modular knitting. It’s worked in one piece from top down and it has lots of ease for a swingy shape.
