It was said, “A slip over sweater shows off all a girls good points – but all the boys want to pull the wool over a girls eyes!” Well, times may have changed but in the end the slip over sweater is still my favorite sweater for women.

Sothern is a study in vintage Fair Isle fashion, made modern. The sweater body is constructed from the bottom up in the round, with the sleeves worked flat. The sleeves and hem are done with a fairly deep 1×1 rib. This piece is worked with no shaping for a generous fit with 2-4” of ease. The high neck line and small peep back is added for ease of fit and comfort.

The color combination of each pattern can be adjusted to fit your preferences. Go loud and proud in neon or subdued and relaxed in pastels.

Notes When working fair isle be sure to carry the yarn loosely. Also a good tip to keep in mind when selecting yarn, choose an animal fiber of some kind. You want to be able to block out the bumps and ripples that will undoubtedly occur if you are new to fair isle.
