Aoife by Sloane Rosenthal features central blocks of tessellating diamonds that interlock and wind up the front and back of this cozy autumnal pullover. The perfect pullover for casual weekends or dressed up for work, this sweater is as comforting as it is eye-catching.
Made from the bottom up in pieces, this pullover features fully-fashioned set-in sleeves for the ideal fit and stockinette sleeves for visual simplicity so all the attention goes to the cables on the front and back. The folded mock turtleneck is picked up after seaming and worked in the round, folded over, then seamed for an always cozy layer around the neck and face.

Forge and its little sibling Weld are our first 100% US-made yarns - and we're the first European stockists of Hudson + West, the fabulous company who makes them! A heathered blend of 70% Merino and 30% Corriedale, Forge is spun up to a worsted weight. It's a round, extremely well-balanced 3ply yarn that works so, so well for cables and texture. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom after blocking. One of our new favorites!

Haven’t started knitting with Forge but it’s lovely!
Feels lovely. I’m familiar with the wool after living in New Mexico Going to make a hat with it
Glad I tried it!
I am glad I you gave me the chance to try this yarn out for a little one skein project. It is smooth and shows of cables and texture very well. I like the hat I knitted from this yarn, but honestly I wouldn‘t knit a garment out of it, because it‘s on the upper price range and not affordable for me. But with one skein I now have a very special luxurious treasure.
