Police Investigator Wilma Lind is Norwegian, just like author Hanne Kristin Rohde and the yarn used in the sample: Sølje by Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. Last but not least is the fact that the designer Linda Marveng is also Norwegian.

The Wilma Lind Jacket is inspired by the protagonist in her crime books: Strong, brave, weak, smart, impulsive, warm, uncertain, and daring. Wilma Lind has the ability to confront and fight – and with a need to be noticed, just like the rest of us. The sample is worked in red to symbolise power and hope. In white to symbolise blank sheets and in soft turquoise to capture the universe.

A long a-line jacket with cables covering the back, and moving cables on the front. Instead of a shawl collar the jacket was given a deep v-neck and a loose shawl to use as a collar. The body is worked in pieces while the sleeves are worked in the round after the rib to the underarm. It is knitted in the in the lustrous pelt yarn with a mohair feel, Sølje from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

Notes: The body is worked flat in pieces, unlike the long sleeves which are worked in the round to the armhole. The front cables move from their center position on the body towards the armhole and shoulder by increasing and decreasing into stockinette stitch. One front cable ends in the v-neck shaping but it is possible to work two cables to the shoulder by working extra stitches to gather cable row and decrease 1 stitch between cables, if necessary increase 1 stitch at either v-neck or armhole edge depending on size.
