Pronounced “ashling”, an Aisling is an old form of Irish poetry wherein a beautiful maiden appears to the poet in a dream or a vision. If images of large Celtic fishermen in chunky, scratchy sweaters is what cabling conjures for you, the Aisling Pullover will turn your world upside down. With luxurious, light weight yarn and a refined aesthetic, the lovely lines and delicate cabling will turn anyone, woman or man, into a vision worthy of poetic immortalization.

The Aisling Pullover is a modern take on a classic V-neck cabled sweater. The front and back are knit from the bottom up, seamed at the shoulders and then the sides, leaving room for the sleeves to be picked up and knit down to the cuff. Featuring several motifs throughout, the cabling is both challenging and fun.

This pattern is fully charted.
