’MAGPIE’ is one of two designs I have created using The Little Grey Sheep’s Gotland 4 ply yarn and is one of my first designs not using Rowan yarn! It has been such a pleasure designing with this lovely 4ply yarn as it is beautifully soft and a dream to knit with.
This design is a fitted shape and will equally look good with a tweed skirt or a pair of jeans.
Please note that this design is knitted flat in pieces and therefore you will be knitting fairisle on the wrong side as well as the right side.

I hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing this design.
