Chart Included: Fair isle pattern

From Interweave Knits: The border and peerie band arrangement and steeked body are bona fide Fair Isle, but the shape is up-to-the-minute: A high, Empire waist, set-in sleeves, and a deeply scooped U-neck create a flatteringly fitted silhouette. Sportweight merino means the sweater can be worn right next to the skin.
