This design uses one main colour and small amounts of 5 other colours, therefore I haven’t included the contrast colours in the required yardage.

This garment is knitted in the round from the bottom up then knitted backwards and forwards when divided for the armhole. The original vintage pattern works the front and backs completely separately but on this occasion I have modified the construction to a more sensible option without dramatically diverting from the original design.

Yarn requirements Excelana 4 ply

4 (5, 6, 7, 8) x 50gm balls of shade Saharan Sand
