Pattern Description:



Photo and written tutorial on steeking is available for download with pattern purchase

A set-in sleeve pullover with a stunning plaid-like fairisle pattern. The oversized pullover is completely seamless, with steeking performed at the sleeve openings and neck. You don't need prior experience with steeking, the pattern will guide you through the steps. The fitted sleeves are picked up from the caps and worked from the top down.
Before settling on your yarn, make a swatch in the plaid pattern and wash your swatch to check for color bleeding.
