Fairifield is they type of garment you can throw on over just about anything to ward off the cooler temperatures of early Fall. The round neckline and A-line silhouette give the sweater a casual feel. The reverse stockinette fabric and 1×1 ribbed trims create a subtle backdrop for beautiful cable & lace detailing. Instructions are provided for working tubular cast ons and bind offs – details that give your garment that extra special finish.


  • All pieces are worked flat from the bottom up, and then seamed together.
  • The button and buttonhole bands are picked up and worked from the fronts. The collar is worked last, with the final buttonhole worked in the collar.
