Fair Isle V-necked Jumper
This pattern has been based on a garment in the Shetland Museum’s Textile Archive. This new design has been created to use Jamieson & Smith’s Shetland Heritage yarn, and tries to recreate the spirit of this sampler of traditional OXO motifs. The front and back of this new version are the same, where the original was different on both sides.The jumper is knit in the round and uses five of the six shades in the range. This kit contains the Yarn and the Pattern to knit the jumper.
