The Swan

The Swan can only be knitted as a pullover with 3/4 sleeve. A knitting kit have enough yarn for sizes S-XL.


Design: Karin Ivarsson, 1966


Recreated by Solveig Gustafsson in 2006. Solveig closely studied original charts and carefully examined vintage garments in museums and private collections to make sure that the resulting patterns and yarns would match the original Bohus Stickning garments as closely as possible.

From beginning in 2014 the pattern colors are hand died by Pernille Silfverberg with permission from Solveig and Bohusläns museum. As well Pernille Silfverberg, AngoraGarnet took over selling the Bohus Stickning kits.

The yarn

The yarn is a 2-ply, 50% angora och 50% merinoyarn. The angorawool for the yarn comes from Pernilles own rabbits as well as from a few other small producers in Bohuslän. The angorawool is processed and spun with merino wool at a family owned mill in Denmark.

Pattern copyright: Solveig Gustafsson and Bohusläns museum. Pattern available only with purchase of yarn kit. The description may not be copied or used to knit garments for sale, but only used for personal use.
