The v-neck, dropped sleeve, Cardigan is knitted in pieces from the bottom up with all-over Fair Isle pattern and the Beret is knitted on straight needles with Fair Isle band.
Rated by Patons as “two beehives” -- average ability and experience.
Instructions are written with Charts and Schematics included.
NOTE: I would have said it was slightly more challenging than rated. It does not, however, require steeks -- merely darning in a LOT of ends.
NOTE: As usual in both fair isle patterns and in baby patterns with more than one piece, this results in distorted yarn amounts. I needed every bit of the 3 skeins of white but very little of one skein of blue to make the sweater and beret in size 18 months.
NOTE: Beret is easy to convert to knitting in the round.
