Mary Henderson's talent for combining colours and a thorough knowledge of Fair Isle traditions result in this pretty lacy top with a Fair Isle yoke. It's fitted at the bust and gently flared at the hem, with cropped sleeves. The Fair Isle colourwork is used around the cuffs too.
Mary knitted her top in Explorer Coast Lace – a 2ply blend of 55% merino lambswool and 45% cotton, which provides a soft fabric and good stitch definition. It's available here from Great British Yarns, in 23 beautiful shades.
