This is a pattern for a top down knit cardigan with 3.4 length sleeves. This pattern has a circular yoke and uses the Fair-Isle colourwork technique in addition to Short Row shaping and a steek.

Added to the Orignal Hillary pattern is the Hillary & Friends pattern, plus a new colour palette (seen in images). The Hillary & Friends is the same as Original Hillary, but with pigs and geese in the lower Bottom Edge motif. There are 3 pdfs, Original Hillary only, Original Hillary + Hillary & Friends, and the charts in colour for all. (The second pdf contains charts with symbols.)

The sleeve and bottom edge chickens are worked with the Fair Isle technique in 2 colours and then embroidery and Duplicate st is used to add colour and accents.

Please see schematic for all approximate finished sizes.
