Christmas Fair Isle Cardy

A really charming girls cardigan which I found in issue 73 of The Knitter. It’s a Drops design and uses Drops Alpaca (baby/sport weight).

I opted for a versatile blues and yellow colour scheme which goes great with denim. The construction was a straightforward bottom-up, seamless design. The narrow bands of fair isle above the lower ribbed edges complement beautifully the full on fair isle yoke. It’s definitely an heirloom piece!
