Its a simple and subtle Fair Isle yoke, with a slightly cropped, aline shape. I used 2ply Jumper Weight in shades 81 and 1 for this sample – to keep it very black and white (as that was the name of the issue!) but i would love to see it in different colours. The pattern is written for the body to be knit flat until the armholes where you then add steek stitches for the yoke, Ive had a few messages since this came out wondering why I did it like this. I personally would steek the whole body but I know that not everyone is a: confident to do this on a plain garment or b: hates purling as much as me. You can easily add the steek stitches after the bottom rib and do that though.
The Making team also put together a peerie bairns version of the pattern – Peerie Moorie, and this was available to subcribers of the magazine, it has also been released back to me so you can get it from my Ravelry store too, i love the photos which were taken of the sample.
So very cute! so although they feel a bit unseasonable at this springtime moment i’m glad to have them available. Happy Knitting x
