English pattern: Test knitting will begin 18. March 2019 and pattern will be released afterwards.

Norwegian pattern: Will be launched in April at Fagstrikk Trade Fair.


Named after the Prophecy Goddess is this elaborate cabled pullover with slightly fitted waist. Two large cable panels are divided by a small cable that ends in a Henley neck, framed with an I-cord. Unlike the body the sleeves only have two small cables surrounded by stockinette stitch, so all the focus is on the body. Corra is knitted in pieces in the divine Hillesvåg Tinde.
