♫ The Music ♫
The Humours of Tulaigh is a sprightly traditional reel that conjures visions of wintry evenings at merry kitchen parties 1 with toes a-tapping to the music.

Features

  • 10 sizes
  • Cabled, V-neck vest
  • Knit bottom-up
  • Worked in the round to armholes, then front and back are worked separately to shoulders
  • Shoulder seams are sewn together
  • No waistline shaping so great fit for everyone and
  • Ribbed edgings are knit onto armhole and neckline edges for great fit and finish.

Cables are worked on both the front and back of the vest; the central cable panel is flanked on both sides by braid and rope cables; beyond the cabled sections, the sides are worked in Stockinette stitch.

Left and right fronts and shoulders refer to the garment as it is worn.
