This kit includes a colour-printed pattern card with full instructions and all the yarn required to make Roscalie in your chosen size. This is an ideal first project for a knitter who wants to make a garment in the round using the stranded technique with steeks.
Roscalie is a stranded colour design made in Alice Starmore ® Hebridean 2 Ply with full instructions for knitting in the round with steeks at all openings. Fully illustrated descriptions of the stranded colour method of knitting can be found in Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting, which is available from our Books section.
Length is from top of shoulder to side seam hemline.
The knitted measurements given are of the finished design when it has been knitted with the tension stated in the pattern instructions.
The range of sizes available depends on the individual design. For garments such as pullovers, cardigans, vests and jackets, use the underam measurement to determine the size you require. The underarm measurement is the finished width around the entire garment, measured under the arms. For a garment with a front fastening, such as a cardigan, the finished underarm is given when the front bands are overlapped and the garment is fastened.
To determine which size is required, use the actual chest/bust measurement, which should be measured straight across the back, under the arms and over the fullest part of the chest/bust.
Then add one of the following measurements according to the type of fit you require:
For a close, body-hugging fit add 1 to 3cm to the actual chest/bust measurement.
For a standard fit add 5 to 8cm.
For a loose fit add 9 to 12cm.
For an oversize fit add upwards of 12cm.
The knitted length given for garments is measured from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the hem.
These are the rich, burnished tones of Scotland’s unique Highland landscape. The patterns are based on an old Fair Isle museum piece, and they are brought to life in Hebridean 2 Ply.
