The golden hillsides of Yellow Island surrounded by sparkling water inspired this cardigan jacket. Twelve shades of Spindrift combine to recreate the magical scene: 130 Sky , 150 Atlantic , 227 Earth , 230 Yellow Ochre , 240 Yell Sound Blue , 252 Birch , 289 Gold , 365 Chartreuse , 1190 Burnt Umber , 1340 Cosmos , 1390 Highland Mist
The Yellow Island Jacket is knit in the round, with only two colours in each round. The pattern contains instructions for steeking and for placing buttonholes. The sweater is a basic raglan with knitted on edges and collar. A small motif runs up the side and along the raglan line.
The pattern is written for 6 sizes: 35”, 39”, 43”, 47”, 51”, and 55”. I suggest 3-4” inches of ease if you want to wear this as a jacket.
The wide sweater bands are knit with two strands held together, which makes them knit up quickly.
Yes, this is the sweater that is on the cover of The Joy of Color that many of you have been asking for.
