I have to share Nivine’s stunning version of Grian with you. The bright orange colour of the Malabrigo Yarn Dos Tierras yarn suits her so well and the intensity is captured in these photos. Nivine is a very skilled knitter and test knitted Grian for me. Hence I am not surprised that the yarn ….”was generously supported by Malabrigo. This yarn feels amazing and wonderful to knit with, makes for a beautiful stitch definition. The color is gorgeous looks like a flaming sunset”. Nivine continues: “I knew I wanted to knit this sweater from the first picture Linda shared. It’s like art in stitches”, I am so thrilled to hear this, thank you ever so much, Nivine! If you recognise her ear rings, they are designed by Kaja Gjedebo Design, whose jewellery I borrow for my photoshoots.
Nivine made the sweater in size M and the one size cowl using a 4 mm/US 6 needles, with a 20 stitches and 28 rows in stockinette stitch gauge per 10 cm/4″ square. The Grian pattern is graded in sizes XS to 5XL with a one size cowl included. You can find Nivine as @neevoknits on Instagram and nivine on Ravelry!
Named after the Faery Goddess from County Tipperary, is this pullover with heavy cabled texture. Grian means sunny, from her days as a regional sun deity, perfectly suited for this pullover. Honeycomb and stag horn cables adorn the body, while only honeycomb rule on the sleeves. Grian is slightly fitted with a crew neck and has a high cowl as a collar. The Fibre Co. Cumbria make the cables pop and allow the texture to shine in all its glory.
