Due to several requests this pattern has been updated and reworked to include the standard range of sizes.

This is a very rewarding, timeless knit, best done in natural 100% wool. A comfortable fitted garment to last a lifetime. Seamlessly knitted in the round, there is no need for steeking or knitting a fair isle pattern on purl rows.

Difficulty: intermediate

Techniques Used:
• Circular knitting
• Yarn over for picot edge
• Reading charts
• Fair isle techniques

Sizes UK 10-16, E 36-42, US 6-12:

200g (450m/ 500yds) fawn DK yarn

For this garment I used pure wool from Highfield Textiles called: Shetland DK ( colours white, fawn, moorit, grey and black). The colour of this wool is natural ‘sheep’ colour and will never fade. The wool is lovely to work with and this garment will probably last a lifetime.
