I wanted to share this stunning version of Sirona knitted by Sarah, aka sarahthecomposer on Ravelry, in size Small using Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Worsted in Wild Thyme. On her project page, she writes: “I adore this sweater so much. I understand why it’s named after a Celtic goddess because when you put it on, you will feel like one.”. I am ever so chuffed to hear it! Thank you so much, Sarah!
She continues: “I love all the beautiful details in the pattern. Funnily enough, one of my favorite things about it are the columns of twisted stitches that separate off the sections of stockinette and double seed stitch. They make everything look so sharp and tidy and perfect. I also really like the I-cord detail at the neckline!” Thank you again, Sarah!
The last photo I will share is work in progress (so-called WIP in knitspeak) photo. Here is my introduction to the pattern: Sirona is Celtic for Star Goddess, the name for this fitted pullover with an intricate central cable surrounded with smaller cables and double seed stitch. The round neckline needed a crown and was given an I-cord bind off decoration. Sirona is knitted in pieces in the divine The Fibre Co. Cumbria.
The pullover pattern is available in English, in sizes XS to 2XL with a bust circumference of 86 to 126 cm/33.75 to 49.5 in and a gauge of 20 stitches and 28 rows in stockinette stitch using a 4 mm/US 6 needle measuring 10 cm/4 in square, on Ravelry but also on LoveCrafts.
