The Woolly Thistle is very excited to now offer Cruden Vest kits which provides you all the yarn you need to complete this beautiful and eye catching Fair Isle vest.
A traditional Fair Isle vest worked from the bottom up entirely in the round. The neck and armholes are steeked and the front shoulders are worked slightly longer than the back to both drop the back neckline for a better fit and to allow the stitch patterns to flow over the shoulder. Ysolda includes detailed instructions for finishing the steeks with crochet in the pattern instructions. After cutting the steeks open stitches are picked up around the armholes and neck and ribbed bands are worked in one of the contrast colours for a slightly sporty detail.
The kit includes:
- Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight in yardage needed for your size (tall sizes are not provided).
- Printed pattern of Cruden by Ysolda Teague
- TWT enamel pin!
- Kit represents 10% off items purchased individually.
30 sts and 36 rows = 4" in charted color work in the round
