Alpaca. Approachable colorwork. All the sweaters, most knit up on size U.S. 10.5-11s. Designed by former Norwegian model and television star Dorthe Skappel, this ultra-hygge collection offers more than two dozen oversized pullovers and cardigans that with proper styling (skinny jeans or pencil skirt and tights) can easily take you from weekend to work. In Norway, Skappel is a marquee name with multi-hyphenate accomplishments as model, TV host, ice-dancing star (for the country's frozen equivalent of Dancing with the Stars), rapper and knitwear designer. She even did her own knitting illustrations. Showcasing warm, skin-friendly alpaca, Skappel's garments take inspiration from traditional Nordic knits but skew modern. Wear the striking Archipelago and Stripes pullover when temps dip as your statement outerwear. Or cuddle up in her voluminous striped and pleated sweater for a truly stylish self-care Sunday. With graphic motifs and on-trend details like high/low split hems, hoodies, marling, colorblocking and extra-long sleeves, Skappel's knitwear feels fresh and young.
A knitwear designer and TV personality in Norway, Skappel has created 28 patterns (27 comfy sweaters and one hat) that make the most of the warmth and delicate halo of alpaca yarns in contemporary Nordic styles. Most of the sweaters are loose-fitting pullovers, some with turtlenecks, some with asymmetrical hems. The colorwork-mostly stripes and geometrics-is charted; there are two colorblocked designs.
