Item details

Fair Isles were very popular with knitters during WWII, allowing them to use up odds and ends instead of buying all new yarn.

This delightful design features a diagonal flower design, with puffed sleeves, round neckline and wide waist ribbing. Utterly charming!

This pattern's finished size is 35 inches around and is knit using a fingering weight yarn on 3.75 and 2.75mm needles.
