Fair Isle Sweater Vintage

 

Fair-Isle Jumper with Boat-Neck

1960s Free Knitting Pattern

 

 Fair-Isle Scandinavian Knitted Jumper Sweater Free Knitting Pattern Vintage 1960s

 

A Fair-Isle vintage pattern to knit a long-sleeved sweater with a boat-neck.

  

Sizes: S/M and M/L

to fit the bust 32-34'' and 36-38'' /81-86 cm and 91.5-96.5 cm

 

NOTE

In the 1960s, knitters used a different system of needle sizes and different kinds of yarn; 
today's knitters have to change and adjust the needle size and substitute yarn respectively.

For this pattern, I recommend worsted medium-weight yarn and US#6 or #7 (4 or 4.5 mm) needles
as the pattern gauge is 19 sts = 4''/10 cm.
