Description
A subtle play of coppery colors forms the background for this unusual Fair Isle pullover. It's worked in the round to the shoulders, with steeks placed for the armholes and the neck opening. The set-in sleeves are also worked in the round, and the sleeve cap is worked using steeks. Believe it or not, no reinforcement was used along the edges of the cutting line. The wool self-felts as you work it and won't ravel when cut.
