This pack contains all the yarn required to make the Fulmar design from Aran Knitting in your chosen size. You will require a copy of Aran Knitting (2010 Edition) for the pattern instructions, click here to visit our Books section.
This design is available in a choice of two colours of Scottish Fleet, see details for digital shade card.
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.
Ropes, braids and chains have strong nautical associations, so I chose these patterns for a design in fisher gansey yarn. This ornate design requires time and patience to knit, but the result is a sweater of heirloom quality.
