Aife Knitted By Georgette

I wanted to show you the beautiful version of Aife that Canadian test knitter Georgette, aka Gemzones on Ravelry, made in Sweet Georgia Yarns, Superwash Sport in Sapphire. She knitted size Medium since her gauge was a bit bigger than in the pattern – 23.5 instead of 25 stitches – to make it a size Large with a 104 cm/41″ bust circumference. Georgette also omitted the waist shaping on the front, but kept it on the back so it would be more flattering on her.

Here you see the back, with the waist shaping. The brilliant blue hand dyed colour together with the stitch definition in the yarn shows off the cable so well!

Finally, here is a closer look of the side. Thank you so much, Georgette!

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.

The Aife pattern in both English and Norwegian is available in my Ravelry store and on Love Crafts.
