I have removed all of my patterns from Ravelry as of March 2021 due to the unresolved accessibility issues.

My patterns are available at LoveCrafts here:

The ‘Tyrolean’ trend of the 1950s produced some wonderful knitting patterns. Women’s cardigans would feature vertical panels of little flowers, usually embroidered on after the knitting was finished.

This modern take does away with as much needlework as possible! Not only are the sleeves and body seamless, the flower pattern is now a Fair Isle panel. As the Fair Isle is knitted in 4ply, this is a great pattern for using up leftover sock yarn. We’ve also included some alternative Fair Isle charts to suit your style!

You will also need small amounts of several colors of 4ply yarn for the stranded colourwork.

The pattern is in the supplement with The Knitter issue 100, which is included free with both the print and digital editions.
