This stunning cardigan with Fair Isle detail is a one-off knitted sample from A Stitch in Time Volume 2 knitted using Excelana 4 Ply, 100% British wool, with Nile Green as the mail colour and Alabaster, Cornflower Blue, French Rose, Persian Grey and Powdered Egg used for the additional shades in the Fair Isle motifs. The exquisite Fair Isle pattern matches that used in the Fair Isle Jumper - the cardigan making up a twin set with this jumper. The Fair Isle motif is used only on the front yoke of the cardigan for maximum impact. The set in sleeves feature 1940s style box head sleeves which can have shoulder pads added for extra drama if preferred . A deep ribbed welt is designed to be worn sat on the hips and the lower body is then gently shaped until the bustline is reached. Gentle v-neck shaping is worked at the fronts and ribbed button bands are worked featuring 8 stylish vintage buttons.
A spectacular cardigan!
