Fylgje is a very large winter shawl, knit in stripy modules. I’ve worked on variations of it for a long time.

Hurray! The pattern for my Fylgje shawl is now released, in Knitty Winter 2017. I’ve been following the magazine for such a long time, so I can hardly believe that my pattern is now part of it.

I submitted a lot of photos, but the ones I though would be considered the best were not picked. Since I’m not trained in photography, I’m still always wondering what makes a good photo. I know which ones I like, but many times, I’m not completely sure why.

Anyway, here’s a handful of photos that are not in the pattern:

My mom wearing the shawl, gazing into the forest. Several people have commented that she is very stylish, and I agree. This is a picture with no make-up or photoshop, so she looks like this in real life.
This is taken later in the year, and I like the slope of the shawl on the shoulders.
Walking down the street. I know you’re not supposed to take photos into the sun, and the background is rather dull, but I like the movement and the line of the lamppost’s shadow.
With my daughter. She wasn’t supposed to be in any photos so she is in her pajamas. We wrapped her in one of the shawls so no nightwear is showing. I think it makes them both look a bit funny, but they look very pleased!
