A Traditional Fair Isle Pullover from the 1950’s. It’s longer
in the body than the ones from the 1940’s and a bit
more in proportion. It’s worked in 3 ply on No. 11 and
13 (old UK size) needles and from Charts, so will take
a while to knit.
The main work and armholes are worked on 2 needles
and the V-neck on 4.
MEASUREMENTS To fit 40-42 inch chest. Length from
top of shoulder, 25 ins
H O W TO C H EC K YOUR TEN SI O N
On No. 11 needles, Cast on 16 stitches and work in
stocking stitch for 20 rows. Cast off: press lightly
on wrong side. The tension should be 8 stitches and
10 rows to one square inch and the knitted square
should measure 2 inches each way.
The needles are old UK sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help
The pattern comes as one easy to download
and print PDF
