The golden hillsides of Yellow Island surrounded by sparkling water inspired this cardigan jacket. Twelve shades of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift combine to recreate the magical scene.

The Yellow Island Jacket is knit in the round, with only two colors in each round. The pattern contains instructions for steeking and for placing buttonholes. The sweater is a basic raglan with knitted on edges and collar. A small motif runs up the side and along the raglan line.

The pattern is written for 6 sizes: 35”, 39”, 43”, 47”, 51”, and 55”. I suggest 3-4” inches of ease if you want to wear this as a jacket.

The wide sweater bands are knit with two strands held together, which makes them knit up quickly.

Yes, this is the sweater that is on the cover of The Joy of Color that many of you have been asking for.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a 27-page pattern, with 3 pages of charts for each size. Take the time to find your charts before printing!
