fairisle cardigan

This cardi has taken me ages! I was trying to get it finished to go under the christmas tree but only managed to cast off last night.

It's a modified version of this pattern I found on Ravelry. I knitted a smaller one before Betty was born and scaled up the pattern to fit her now.

I also free-styled on the fairisle. It's knitted from Jamiesons of Shetland's Spindrift. The main colour is Leprchaun.

I always like to look at the reverse on fairisle knitting.

Next project... fairisle jumper for me!


  1. This is such a lovely cardi and I also think the pose in photo one is spot on!! Great model attitude! Can't wait to see the grown up version.

  2. It's so pretty! I'm hoping to get over my fear of Fair Isle this year and make a cardigan for Milla. And isn't Miss Betty looking grown up?

  3. Happy New Year clever Vicky! The colours of the jersey are really beautiful and I bet Betty is cosy in it too. What an industrious start to the year you've had already! x

  4. Utterly gorgeous. Fair Isle is my favourite thing.. and this is just fabulous.

  5. Oh my goodness it's beautiful! Just such a great colour combination.
