Notes

The pattern I have is an OLD pattern from a magazine given to me by a customer from 1980.

This has turned out so lovely!!!! I was quite worried about the shape of the sweater pre-blocking, as my fair isle work on the yoke was bunching. Soaked in cold water for an hour, and squeezed out as much water as I could. Then I stretched it over a dress form and blocked the yoke out! It is a really gorgeous looking sweater now!!!!!
