About the pattern:
Aimsir (pronounced AM-shir) means weather in the Irish language, a common subject of polite conversation in Ireland and the British Isles. An older meaning is “time” which was apparently used in a proverb that means “time is a good storyteller.”

Featuring The Fibre Co. Arranmore yarn, Innisfree is a collection of designs inspired by the reflective mood of William Butler Yeats’ poem “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” which begins with the words “I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree…I will arise and go now, for always night and day, I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore.”

EXTRAS

TENSION

  • 14 sts and 22 rows to 10 cm (4 in) measured over st st using 6mm (US 10) needles.
  • It is important to check your tension before starting to knit your garment as the tension governs the finished size. If you work to the wrong tension, your garment will not measure the same as the one shown in the photograph and you may run out of yarn, or need to buy more.
  • Check your tension by knitting a swatch at least 12 cm (5 in) square. If there are more sts and rows to 10 cm (4 in) than stated, try again using thicker needles. If there are less sts and rows to 10 cm (4 in) than stated, try again using thinner needles.
  • Yarn quantities are based on average requirements and are therefore approximate.
