Some of the most interesting elements of this design are:

• short rows at the back of neck makes the fit more comfortable

• side panels of small color motifs modernizes the classic Fair Isle

• increases on each side of those side motifs create A-line shaping for a most flattering fit

• using Ty-Dy Wool, a 100% long-color-changes wool, makes colorwork easy, and ever changing (no 2 garments are alike)

• using Brae Tweed for your main color adds color flecks throughout without having to color strands the solid sections
