Fair Isle Progress

I've attached the sleeves to the body and knit around for about 1". I began the pattern without any decreases so far. I've decided to do 2 repeates of the yoke pattern instead of just one because I like yoke patterns that are pretty far down on the sleeves of the sweater. I ended up with 288 stitches once I put the sleeves on. Fortunately, as these things often turn out, I was able to evenly fit the pattern into this first set of numbers. The first part of the pattern is a repeat of 4 sts., and the second is 12 st. repeat. We'll see what happens after I do the first decrease. Meg S. said in the video that she had to do some fudging of the pattern all the way around, so I'll see what happens. Later:) Posted by Picasa


  • The sweater is lovely! It seems like the fairisle would make the yoke go faster. That is, it's more interestesting than 200-300 stitches of plain stockinette per round. Is this made from handspun?

  • No, it's shetland. I am going to be starting another sweater from handspun though soon. I also have the dubbelmosa in progress from handspun. :)
