From ‘Knitting Today’s Classics’: Two favorite traditional knitting techniques are combined in this group of pullovers for the family. The solid-colored sweaters are knit throughout in the Aran pattern. In the multicolored versions, two-color Fair Isle knitting is worked in bold motifs on the lower sections, and the hem is trimmed with multicolored corrugated ribbing. The yoke is made up of an array of Aran cables separated by small columns of twist stitches. For the experience knitter, this design offers the challenge of working with two techniques for a project that is exciting and technically inspiring. The Fair Isle version is knit in the round to the armholes, then split and worked back and forth in Aran stiches. The pattern begins on page 18.
There are 5 colors in the Fair Isle version. The Aran patterns are written out, not charted.
