• Geo Yoked Fair Isle Sweater : Knit Kit

  • £79.50

  • Description

    Inspired by the geology and landscape of the Scottish Islands, this sweater creates texture and colour in the yoke using a new interpretation of the fabulous Fair Isle OXO patterns.

    The Geo Yoked sweater started life as a commission from Shetland Wool Week 2017 Fashion Show. The inspiration came from my love of the geology and landscape of the Islands and a feeling that I wanted to create texture and colour in the yoke in a new interpretation of the fabulous Fair Isle OXO patterns. We hope you like it.

    This Knit Kit is for experienced knitters with a love of seamless knitting, colour, cable and Fair Isle.
