There's a new Falkenberg kit!

I just discovered there's a new Hanne design. I don't think it's up on the official Falkenberg site yet, but found it in a Norwegian online shop called Pinnsvindesign. It's called Plissé (which means pleated). I like the shape of this, and ordered one immediately.

Thanks for sharing

I think you can pick any colour you like in her entire range. They have made a colour card for this cardi, but it wasn't up yet when I ordered my kit.

it's up on the official HF website now, and yes you can pick any one of the 72 (!!!) colours on the colour card. it looks great, I'd almost wish I was not working on that other HF project :)

Has anyone actually looked at the pattern and seen the directions? Is it easier to follow than the others or will it require a spreasheet to make it possible?

knitting HF designs without a spreadsheet is not impossible - I knit Diva without one. it requires concentration, a row counter and some stitch markers :)

Stitchmarkers, concentration and a pencil to jot down some notes as you knit is all it takes. I don't find them particularly difficult, but they do require some patience. A huge garment like Ballerina takes a lot of time on such tiny needles.
