Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

This is a pattern for a Fair-Isle style jumper with set in sleeves worked from the bottom up and in almost completely in the round with steeks.
This pattern is intended for more advanced knitters comfortable with working a pattern repeat chart WITH written instructions.

The Main Motif and optional Sleeve Extension charts for this pattern are both in colour and symbols; symbol charts - pages 11 - 13. There are not charts for each size, only the 24 stitch repeat motif. You will need to know how to read charts and extend them over an required shaping.

Please see schematic for approximate finished measurements to find your best fit.
