This was another blend that I was working on over the Christmas Period and somehow never got around to writing up the details until now.
You can find Version 1 -
Toby’s Fisherman’s Gillet

The heavier, denser blend is 84% Merino:16% silk

Merino - 16% each shade:
Peach, Salmon, Grass, Aubergine & Jonquil
Grade A Mulberry Silk

Folly Fields I

Second blend used 14% of each of the shades, but replaced Mallard Merino instead of the silk and I added a claret.

Folly Fields II

Because this pattern is being knitted for a guy in a wheelchair, and this means that when seated his back gets cold - so he wants the gillet to cover his back, without bunching in his lap.


Cast On 70 stitches and knit in pattern for 7 inches
Cast on 36 stitches on each side (think wings) and using panel cable patterns knit in pattern until arms reached - 15” in total.
