NHK20-4 Fair Isle Hoodie and Vest

Fair isle fans will just plotz. These are such vibrant, sporty pieces! For the hoodie, the back, front, and sleeves are worked flat-- then they're all joined for the yoke and (still working flat) you carry on with the raglan decreasing. The vest is knit traditionally in pieces. Both garments have pockets and allover 'spot' knit/purl patterning on the solid bodies. Pinheiro has tremendous fun with the hoodie in particular, though; there are embroidered and French-knotted accents around the flowers and a tri-coloured drawstring. From Nashua Handknits Book 20, Snow.
