The Geo Yoked sweater started life as a commission from Shetland Wool Week 2017 Fashion Show. The inspiration came from my love of the geology and landscape of the Islands and a feeling that I wanted to create texture and colour in the yoke in a new interpretation of the fabulous Fair Isle OXO patterns. For experienced knitters with love of seamless knitting, colour, cable and Fair Isle!
There are 3 gauges for the different elements of the design.

  1. for Stocking stitch
  2. for 1 & 1 Fair Isle section
  3. for Cable colour section. 1 x 50grs ball of 4 contrast colours of Lalland Lambswool. 4(5, 6, 7) balls of Main Colour of Lalland Lambswool.
