Pattern: Fair Isle Yoke from A Stitch in Time, by Jane Waller and Susan Crawford
Yarn: Rowan Scottish Tweed 4ply
– ribbing for the body: as many stitches as the second size, decreased to the number of stitches of the smallest size on the first row of the stocking stitch part
– I’ve rewritten the sleeves completely, because the sleeves are not graded, and the body is, the sleeves of the smallest size are too big compared to the body. It turned out very well, they’re still puffy but don’t look so enormous. And they fitted perfectly into the armholes.
This was a fun pattern to knit and the yarn is super. I thought it would be a bit itchy, but it’s not. I think it will be a very nice sweater for autumn. My first vintage knit, I think the sweater looks really old fashioned with the high neckline and puff sleeves. I like that.

I knitted this a few months ago but made the pom-pon today. I was somehow too lazy to do it earlier. Making the pom-pon was not especially fun to do, but the result is cute. I like this hat, I think it will get a lot of wear.
