Lewisburg Pullover

Winsome peeries (meaning ‘tiny’ in the Orcadian dialect) and wavy stripes circle the yoke of this updated take on time-honored Fair Isle techniques. Waist shaping and a slightly cropped fit combine with three quarter sleeves for a svelte and stylish silhouette.

Lewisburg is worked in the round from the top down, with short rows to shape the back neck. Traditional two-color Fair Isle motifs adorn the yoke.

This pattern includes colorwork charts.
