Patterned Cardigan

Pages from the visual diary, of a Fair Isle inspired cropped cardigan. Handknitted with 8ply wool.
This design has no armhole shaping and the sleeve is worked downwards from armhole to cuff. The shaping was kept very simple as I was learning Fair Isle patterning on this model. The groovy old buttons, which matched perfectly, belonged to my grandmother.
