Bohus Stickning Lemon Gul

1125 kr - 4495 kr

Lemon Gul, known as The Lemon Yellow in English, was designed for Bohus Stickning by Annika Malmström-Bladini in 1957. She also created a version of the same design with a white base colour, the Lemon Vit.

The knitting kit for Lemon Gul was developed in 2010 from original charts and garments held in museum collections. The design is available as knitting kit for a pullover /cardigan with a round yoke, as a hat and as wristlets.

The garment is knitted on a greenish yellow base (no 48) in angora/merino yarn spun from 50% hand-clipped angora wool from our own angora rabbits and 50% New Zealand merino wool. The yarn is spun in Denmark at Heinrichsens Uldspinderi and is dyed to match the original yarns. The main colours are dyed at the spinning mill to ensure an even saturation across the whole garment. The pattern colours are hand dyed by Pernille Silfverberg.

Product description

The knitting kit contains enough yarn to complete a pullover or cardigan in the largest size XL, a finished garment measurement of 117 cm (46 inches) around the chest. The kit includes pattern instructions to create an authentic reproduction of the original Bohus Stickning design in sizes from 92cm - 117cm. These instructions include the option of either an elastic or folded neckband, as original examples exist in both styles. The kit also includes a printed pattern card with samples of the 9 pattern colours to use as a reference.

The garment is worked from the top down, in AngoraGarnet Bohus Angora Merino Yarn. The patterned yoke of the design is knitted with up to three colours on a single row at a gauge of 33 stitches/10cm. The majority of rows in the yoke have only 2 colours, with approximately 6 rows of 3 colours. Only knit and purl stitches are used. The cardigan is knit flat with the front bands knitted at the same time. The pullover is knit in the round to the under ams and then knitted in flat and seamed to match the original construction. Knitting needles are not included in the kit, however typically a needle size of 2mm-2.5mm will be required to achieve the correct gauge.

Please note: Pattern colours for this design are hand dyed by Pernille to ensure they correctly match the original design. Please anticipate that it may take 3 weeks before you receive notice that your kit has been put together and sent to you. During busy periods or holidays (or if more than a couple of pattern colours are out of stock and need to be dyed for you) this may be extended.

The buttons on the original garment were mother-of-pearl buttons 12 mm in diameter with two holes and a small notch between them. Buttons are not included in the knitting kit.
