I know you have seen several versions of Vaga already, but it was such a thrill to see so many gorgeous versions appear on Ravelry during the test knitting, so I have to show you a few more. Meet Nivine, who lives in Georgia in the US. She made size Medium in one of her favourite colours – described as sunset on her profil page – Pollen in the gorgeous hand dyed Hedgehog Fibres Merino DK using 4.5 mm/US 7 needles. Nivine added another repeat to the pattern on the body to make it a bit longer. I love the colour and fit on her. This is what she writes on her project page: “Love, love this so well written pattern and the fit is perfect!”.
This is the stunning front of Nivine’s Vaga. Thank you so much for test knitting for me!
Here is my introduction to Vaga: Named after the Celtic Goddess of the River Wye is this pullover with cables that runs over the body and sleeves. A saddle shoulder allows the swing cable to continue to the neck with its twisted rib ending. The pullover is slightly shaped for the waist and knitted in the gorgeous The Fibre Co. Cumbria Worsted.
The English pattern is available on Ravelry and Loveknitting, while the Norwegian pattern has been published in the special magazine called “Høststrikk” published by Familien, on sale now.
