Spotted Stripes Pullover

This is a great first Fair Isle pattern. The pattern repeat is regular and easy to remember, so that you can concentrate on practicing stranded knitting. The purl rows make an interesting contrast to the stripes.

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.

The Fair Isle pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
