Take a tour of Scandinavia as you explore Northern Lights, a new collection of patterns that are inspired by the region and its cultures that are steeped in a rich history of knitting. The six stunning patterns of Northern Lights take you through Norway, Iceland, Finland, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, and Sweden, all while reinterpreting traditional designs and techniques with a uniquely modern flair.
Your tour begins in Norway where modern shaping and a warm, neutral palette warm up a Norwegian-inspired pullover, the Aesa Pullover. Featuring two-color motifs with a pop of color for accents, set-in sleeves with lengthwise patterning and hemmed edges, the Aesa Pullover is finished off with a zippered collar. The Baldrun Pullover is a bottom-up sweater that contrasts the plain stockinette body with colorful, geometric patterning along the yoke, hem, and cuffs. The Kaata Hat & Scarf are sure to perfect your colorwork techniques as you work your way through a variety of traditional motifs to create a double layered scarf and a cozy hat that is knit from the brim up. The Edele Cardigan takes a break from colorwork to echo a simpler time with an all-over textured snowflake pattern while a deep neckline and basic shaping gives this design a modern, boyfriend cardigan appeal. Crisp lines and small, delicate motifs come together to create the Marna Pullover. With simple raglan shaping, a folded hem, and a wide scoop neck, this is a classic pullover that is as comfortable as it is elegant. Finally, round out your Scandinavian excursion with a stop in Sweden. The Tuva Pullover is a slim fitting sweater that combines textured stitches with a brightly patterned colorwork yoke for an impressive finish. Knit in the round from the bottom up, this fine gauge pullover gets a luxurious twist by incorporating the soft halo of Aloft throughout the colorful yoke.
All of the women's garments are sized up to 64" bust measurement with different design elements incorporated into each sizing to allow for a perfect fit. Whether you are drawn to bold geometric shapes, textured motifs, or intricate colorwork, the Northern Lights collection lets you explore this wonderful region and enjoy the true beauty of tradition.
