Jolbeth Top Knitting Pattern


Pattern Description

Seamless, sleeveless, striped top with Fair Isle yoke in two sizes. The open front top fastens with three buttons.

The instructions include alternative colour suggestions, the colours in the main photo and three more colourways shown in this blog.

The body is knitted sideways, in one piece, and could be knitted in just one colour - yarn quantities are given for that option.

In the Fair Isle yoke only two colours are used in each round.

Detailed instructions are given for all steps needed to knit this seamless top.

The techniques used to make this seamless top are shown in detail in the DVD/download "The Fine Art of Fair Isle Knitting with Shetland's Hazel Tindall".
