inspired by my design for Shetland Wool Week 2016 this jumper takes the Crofthoose motif onto a traditionally inspired yoke jumper. Short rows at the neck give this a modern and comfotable shape and knit using Shetland Jumper weight it makes a warm garment suitable for all year round. Included is 3 different colourways and a chart for using your own colours.

Colourway 4 – use the chart to choose your own colours!
Yarn quantities are estimates, if you use different colours for each row of houses (colourway 1) you will use less yarn from each ball but using the same for background and foreground on different rows (colourway 2) will use more of each shade.

GAUGE 28 sts and 40 rows to 10cm / 4” measured over stocking stitch on 3mm needles

NEEDLES & ACCESSORIES
2.5mm (UK 13-12 / US 1.5) circular needles or DPNs for working body, sleeves and neck rib
3mm (UK 11 / US 2.5) circular needles or DPNs for working body and sleeves
Optional: 3.5mm (UK 10-9 / US 4) circular needles or DPNs for yoke – my Fair Isle knitting is quite tight so I choose to go up half a needle size for the yoke. You may not feel this is necessary but take time to check your gauge and adjust as necessary.
4 stitch markers (1 in a different colour for beginning of round)
Stitch holders or waste yarn
