Ancamna Sweater

Ancamna (ahn-kam-nah) is a water goddess from continental Celtic mythology, known from inscriptions in the Moselle valley, near the German city of Trier, northeast of Luxembourg. As both the color and the fluidity of the lines created by the different stitch patterns remind me of water, naming this design Ancamna seemed fitting.
Tunic can be worn equally well over a dress or pants. The lower hem is wide for ease of wearing, and to give it a fun little swing. The cable and lace stitch in the skirt morphs into a simple cable stitch for the bodice.
