About 29¼ (33½, 37½, 41¾, 46)" (74.5 [85, 95, 106, 117] cm) bust circumference. Pullover shown measures 33½" (85 cm).

Inspired by maritime life in the North Seas, this boatneck pullover features a diamond pattern across the yoke and a small allover pattern in the sleeves for a new twist on tradi-tional Fair Isle patterns. The shape couldn’t be more simple and traditional, but subtle waist shaping and a modified drop shoulder flatter the body. The sleeves have no shaping be-tween the cuff and armhole, which makes them blousy at the cuff and fitted at the upper arm and gives a feminine touch that complements the strong blue-and-white color scheme. The lack of shaping at the yoke makes the allover Fair Isle pat-tern quick and easy to knit.
