This beautiful fair isle yoke sweater from 1946, is knitted flat and then seamed together.

The sweater shown in the photographs was knitted using a looser tension than that now recommended.

The yarn to make this lovely sweater can be purchased by following this link, Susan Crawford Excelana Wool 4ply.

Take a peek at our ’look book’ for A Stitch in Time Volume 1.

PLEASE NOTE: It is important to work the recommended number of rows after the armhole shaping as stated on both the front and the back pieces - 41 rows on the back, but only 6 on the front. At this point on the front the fair isle yoke commences.

There is a colour error in the pattern on Row 13 on the yoke - Y has been used as in the original pattern, this should read O.
My apologies for any confusion this might have caused.

Stitch in Time Vol 1 was published under the name Jane Waller & Susan Crawford.
