Coronation Sleeveless Pullover
THIS PATTERN IS PART OF THE CORONATION KNITS EBOOK COLLECTION AND IS NOT AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE SEPARATELY.
THE BOOK IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINT FORMAT FROM MY WEBSITE.
Instructions are provided for this sleeveless pullover to be knitted either flat in two pieces or in the round. The garment is knitted using traditional Fair Isle techniques following a chart. Using only two colours throughout this pattern is ideal for someone ready to try a garment in Fair Isle but not ready for the leap to numerous colours.
Sizing is offered from teenage through to 56” inch and can easily be adapted for female sizing by knitting the body shorter.
