About the designer

Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

I was playing with different elements of Fair Isle designs when I came up with the pattern used in this sweater. I thought it was a perfect match for the royal colors of purple and gold. The band patterns are all taken from the larger pattern, and the bands are all hemmed for a nice finish. The purl ridges set the patterns off from one another.
