Combining colours successfully when designing Fair Isle knitwear is a real skill - and is one that Mary Henderson demonstrates every time she creates a pattern for us.

Here, she has used a spring-like palette of pastels to create a pretty slipover, featuring deep corrugated ribbing at the waist, classic Fair Isle motifs such as the OXO pattern and bands of smaller motifs known as peeries. Worked in the round, this garment is knitted using 4ply Shetland wool from Jamieson & Smith.

UK sizes 6 - 26, to fit bust 30-50 inches.

Please note, the pattern for sale is only available in English
