Bruntsfield Pattern

Paper Copy of the Bruntsfield pattern by Ysolda Teague, a v-neck Fair Isle vest with strong lines and traditional x and o geometric patterns. Bruntsfield is worked from the bottom up in the round. Above the underarm additional steek stitches are added to bridge the gaps at the neck and armholes to avoid working stranded colourwork back and forth. When the knitting is complete these are finished with crochet and cut open, detailed illustrated instructions are included for this process. After cutting the steeks open, stitches are picked up around the armholes and neck and ribbed bands are worked. A crisp angle at the v on the neck is created by working mitred decreases.

The pattern is not written for our yarn but Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight is a perfect substitute, we have worked out the quantities as follows:
