It must be my Celtic roots: I’ve always loved the ancient symbols of the Celtic culture - the crosses and highly textured carvings in particular. Celtic knotwork provides the inspiration for this masculine wool sweater, with details fit for a sorcerer … or a philosopher, if you prefer. Brawny cables and fluid I-cord motifs cast stony spells against a horizontal rib ground in mossy green.

NOTES:

The body is worked in one piece from the bottom in the round to the armholes, then front and back are worked separately.

I-cord trims in various lengths are applied through openings and along guidelines worked in while knitting the chest.

Thanks for the pattern notes regarding a few misaligned stitches in the pattern. Apologies!
