Knitting pattern for a Fair Isle style vest / slipover in four adult sizes using nine colors of fingering / jumper weight Shetland wool yarn, circularly knit in traditional Fair Isle style using steeks without any reinforcement. This method demands that you use 100% traditional wool yarn. Superwash wools and non-wool yarns are not suitable for this design. I highly recommend Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift 100% Shetland wool yarn for this project. Yarn packs in the colors shown are available here.

SIZES: 36 (39 3/4, 42, 46 1/4)” / 91 (101, 107, 117) cm.

GAUGE: The first and third sizes are knit at 32 sts over 4” / 10cm; the second and fourth sizes are knit at 29 sts over 4” / 10cm.

NEEDLES: Depending upon the gauge you choose, for knitters who tend to knit loosely, we suggest US #1 1/2 to US #2 for the ribbing and US #2 1/2 to US #3 for the main body. If you tend to knit tightly, we suggest US #2 to US #2 1/2 for the ribbing and US #3 to US #4 for the main body.

YARN: Seventeen 25g balls of fingering / jumper weight Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift 100% Shetland wool yarn. Yarn packs are available from us here.

NOTIONS: Stitch markers; stitch holders; scissors; a sheet of cardboard; tapestry needle.
