Notes

Yarn kit with Norwegian pattern will be launched in August at Oslo Design Fair.

English pattern will be test knitted beginning on 4th of November before the pattern is released here on Ravelry.


Devorgilla’s stunning cable adorns this swoncho with garter stitches on the center sleeve and collar. It is knitted in pieces with vents in each side and shoulder shaping in the gorgeous Tinde Pelsull from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. The collar ends in a I-cord bind off to crown the playful center cable. Gillah means joy in Hebrew and it suited this swoncho tribute to Dorota Kowalczyk.
