for Dale Garn (formerly Dale of Norway)   2003

12514 Islender (ages 4 - 12)

Fans of traditional Faroe Islands motifs will go into happy orbit over this sweater, and with excellent reason. It is in every respect an exemplar of the genre. The fair isle patterning is extremely regular-- each round is 4 stitches of the main colour and 1 of the contrast colour, period. Worked in the round to the neck, then back and forth. Sleeves are worked in the round with a facing; armholes are cut into the body tube after machine stitching reinforcement. Ribbed crew neckline is doubled and sewn down to the inside. From Dale of Norway Book 125.
