Aife Pattern Released

The test knit of Aife has come to an end and my test knitters did a marvellous job improving the pattern. Both the English and the Norwegian pattern is available on Ravelry  and also on LoveCrafts. Above you see the slightly fitted Aife pullover knitted in Pure Sport by Dye Dye Done, worn by the gorgeous Kaja Kvernbakken, with make-up & hair styling by Sissel Fylling and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by Eivind Røhne.

Aife was the Queen of the Isle of Shadow according to Celtic mythology. This elaborate cabled pullover with a slightly fitted waist, is made for a female warrior. A large cable panel, created by Devorgilla, is mirrored with two small cables at the center. The sweater ends in a generous turtle neck in ribbing. To show off the stunning hand dyed Pure Sport yarn by Dye Dye Done, the sleeves are in stockinette stitch with only two small centered cables. Aife is knitted in pieces for the ultimate fit.
