This Fair Isle V-neck pullover is vintage inspired. The vest features a cropped length sitting at the high waist, and increases worked from the waist to the bust.

It is worked in the round from the bottom up, and uses steeks at the armholes, and front and back neck. Eighteen sizes are included, from 28 to 62 inch bust.

Designed to be worn with some negative ease for a fitted look; find some high-waist jeans and a vintage-style blouse to wear with it and you’ll look like you walked out of the 1950s! (Victory rolls are optional, but do help to sell the look!)
