The Heart of a Friend Fairisle Sweater

from Live.Knit.Love
(6) Name: 'Knitting : The Heart of a Friend Fairisle Sweater
The Heart of a Friend Fairisle Sweater

Pattern Description:

"I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where... And the song, from beginning to end, I found again
in the heart of a friend." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Is there anything more beautiful than the heart of a friend? Is there anything better than finding a little piece of yourself in the heart of a friend? Nothing. Well... maybe nothing except finding yourself in this warm and beautiful fairisle sweater!

The little row of hearts at the top of the yoke remind us each time we see them that our hearts are what truly make us beautiful.

And, the other heart-warming Fairisle patterns are fun and easy to do, too! Even if you've never Fairisle'd before! And - did we mention - this sweater is SEAMLESS!
