The seemingly random placement of the Modern Fair Isle pattern on this cardigan has actually been carefully considered by our designers to create a quirky, on-trend patchwork effect. The effect continues onto the back which is made from two panels seamed down the centre. This fun project for more experienced knitters is bound to draw attention to your knitting skills when you wear it.
