This design is a true modern classic, the bold colors together with the traditional fair isle motif make this a wa-wa-woom sweater! :) The neck opening is quite generous and resembles a boat neck opening which is very flattering and feminine. The design will keep you warm while looking chic and unique.I have chosen to work with very strong colors which bring out the details of the fair-isle pattern, I encourage you to try out different color combinations but if you want to knit exactly this one you will find which yarns I used below.

The sweater is knitted on circular needles from bottom up.

How much yarn you will need will depend a bit on how tight you knit, when in doubt it is better to stock up with a bit extra yarn.
