A CHEERFUL colour palette has been used for this pretty Fair Isle cardigan. The yoked design is knitted in the round with steeks that are cut open and reinforced. It uses Nordic Wool from Novita, which offers excellent stitch definition.

To fit bust:
30-32; 34-36; 38-40; 42-44; 46-48; 50-52; 54-56; 58-60; 62-64 inches

Actual bust:
32.25; 36.25; 40.5; 44.5; 48.75; 52.75; 57; 61; 65.25 inches

Additional tension Information:
Gauge for stranded colourwork is 23 stitches and 26 rounds to 4 inches using larger needle.
Note: the tighter tension in the stranded knitting gives a neat fit over the yoke and borders; the plain stocking stitch tension gives a relaxed fit in the body. Bust measurements are calculated at stranded st st tension.
