This stunner-inspired by Ireland’s scenic green Cliffs of Moher, known too for its rainbows-pills out all the stops: worked in the round from the bottom up, the pullover’s cable pattern and seed-stitch detailing are mimicked on the sleeves, which are worked in the round and feature bell-shaped cuffs. Seed stitch at the yoke transition leads to striped colorwork, including Celtic knots (“symbolic of the clouds and mists that disperse the spectrum of light”) and swirls, that continues through the funnel neck. “Nature profoundly inspires me,” says Domyancic-Fox, “and the colors of the Donegal Tweed, combined with the slubs, closely mirror the colors and textures of the natural world.”

Colorways used are #894 dark grey-green (A), #804 purple (B), #884 light gray (C), #844 midnight blue (D), #871 cobalt (E), #859 bright olive, #876 butternut (G), #873 burnt orange (H), and #863 dark red (I).
