The supersale I'm currently running on Beknitted's social media continues throughout the week. Spring is a real low season for me and therefore a perfect time to go through the shelves and offer a sale. What ever posted comes in one copy only. It might have been used in an exhibition or knitted as a sample garment. But regardless, it's handmade craftsmanship in high quality. Everything is knitted in natural material, wool or linen. Design, knitting and assembly are done by me at my home in Frösön, Jämtland. Local and sustainable. Check out some things from the design series Arv (Heritage) that can be seen in social media right now!
Arv pays homage to tradition and history
Arv means heritage in Swedish. It's a design that breathes old knitting tradition and folklore. But with a modern twist. One of my customers wanted a knitted sweater inspired by 'Delsbo pattern'. I was given free reins to interpret old folk costume patterns and design something that lifts and celebrates the tradition but at the same time feels fresh and contemporary.
Knitted linen pillow in yarn from Växbo Lin
The Arv pillow case is knitted in yarn from the Swedish brand Växbo Lin. The background is in unbleached linen and the pattern colors are yellow, green and bright red. The back consists of unbleached woven linen and it has a hidden zipper at the bottom. How nice would it be on your kitchen sofa or patio?
Sheer long-sleeved wool sweater
Here is Arv as a sweater. It's knitted in an incredibly thin and fine merino lambswool. Since the yarn is so light, the knit becomes almost sheer. This makes it easy to carry without feeling bulky. But do not underestimate merino wool! It may be thin, but it will keep you warm.
In this picture, I have tucked the sweater inside a pair of straight 90's jeans. Folklore in an updated style! With a base of ecru-nature and pattern colors in mustard yellow, burnt ocher and red. The size of the this sweater is S / M. If you want to order it in another size, do so here.
Arv to children size fresh
It's so cute with knitwear for kids! I simply had to knit an Arv in size baby. The colors and design are the same as the women's sweater. Surely it would be cute as a mummy and me? If you want to give a really nice baby gift, take the opportunity to shop for both mother and child at the Flash Sale. The children's sweater on sale is a size 98/104. Of course you can also order it in a different size in the store.
