Hanne Falkenberg models
As mentioned, Hanne Falkenberg is behind a number of models that are so well-known and unique that they are known by name among knitters. This applies to e.g. the popular sweater Studio, which is known for the beautiful construction with diagonal stripes and zigzag pattern. Studio and the sister Studio Long are, as is characteristic of many of Hanne Falkenberg's models, knitted in garter stitch, and with thin stripes in two or three colors, which provides a nice, graphic expression. Another popular model is, very well deserved, the beautiful Mermaid, which is a waist jacket with a very nice shape with wedges and vertical stripes. Mermaid is worked back and forth in garter stitch and always with only one color at a time, which is very characteristic for Hanne Falkenberg, and which - for many knitters - contributes quite significantly to the good knitting experience. We can also highlight the beautiful Mariager cape, which is a beautiful and characteristic example of Hanne Falkenberg's design with the knitted stripes, graphic expressions and good use of colors. Hanne Falkenberg is well known for this particular type of garment, namely the cape, which can be described as an open vest or cardigan without sleeves.
