Happy New Year! I hope your 2019 is off to a great start so far! I’m excited to share the next in the Celtic Collection I’m releasing over the course of the year. This is Yule, a richly cabled unisex pullover. It’s knit using a tweedy DK-weight yarn (the sample is knit from Rauma Yarns Strikkegarn, but you could easily substitute in Wooly Wonka Fibers’ Aeslin DK if you’d like it in a hand-dyed version.) The pattern is available currently on Ravelry as an instant download.
The sweater is knit from the bottom hem up in pieces, and then seamed together. The sleeves are also worked in pieces, with a cabled saddle shoulder detail and then set into the body. The hems are trimmed with a 2x2 ribbing, as is the neckline. The construction features modified dropped shoulders for a comfortable fit. The stylized staghorn cables give a nod to the stag, which is a symbol of the Solstice and the turning of the year from darkness into light.
