Named after the Celtic Goddess of Munster who had a magical harp in her possession is this ballon shaped dress where the shaping is done by the cables. The a-line created by the cables is mirrored on the body. The front has Right cables beginning at hip one at a time, while the back has Left cables. A cowl makes a high cabled collar or a belt. Wear it loose hanging down, slightly pulled up or as a tunic with the rib turned.

18 sts and 30 rows in rib measures 10 cm/4” square.

Notes: The dress is knitted in pieces and seamed. The cables shape the dress, by adding one cable at a time. Add elastic to the bottom if you prefer to wear it higher up. Shorten the dress by working it up to 7 cm/2.75” shorter just before the armhole to move the cables up and in addition you can work the rib 5 cm/2” shorter. You can also adjust the length in the stocking stitch area, depending on how you prefer to wear it (and remember that it will ride up a bit when you walk). The cowl can easily be adjusted to your preferred height by adding cable repeats or purl stitches in between the cables. A circular needle is used to accommodate all the stitches.

Yarn kit with Norwegian pattern is available from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk
