Product details

My Grandfather, Pop, was stationed in France during the First World War and for a few months after Armistice Day. He sent rosy, hopeful and comforting letters home to his Mother, Fannie Fouche Hardy. This design is inspired by the styles of the time plus a little bit of today’s hopeful and comforting approach to styling.

CONSTRUCTION
Knit from the top down, with the sleeve caps knit at the same time as the yoke, and then separated into sleeves and body. A seamless path, a knitter’s journey! The decorative stitch patterns on the front and back are easily memorized.

Variegated yarn is not recommended for this design. If using a semi-solid, such as Providence, alternating skeins every two rows helps to prevent color pooling and maintains the rich overall depth of color.
