This stunning Fair Isle jumper 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 is featured on both front and back of the jumper and followed with a stylish square neckline. Set in sleeves feature 1940s style box head sleeves which can have shoulder pads added for extra drama if preferred and finish a little above the elbow as was typical of this period. A deep ribbed welt is designed to be worn on the waist and the lower body is then gently shaped until the bustline is reached.
Truly the quintessential 1940s Fair Isle sweater!
The sample was knitted to fit 34-36 inch (87-91 cm) chest and has a finished chest dimension of 38 inches (96 cm) and a length to underarm of 11.5 inches (29 cm).
