Kelbourne Woolens Fiddlehead is an adorable knitting pattern that is adapted from a vintage pattern which was available from several yarn companies—Bear Brand, Fleisher, Bucilla, and Columbia to name a few—in the 1930s to 1950s. While the basic idea is the same, the pattern has been updated to account for modern knitters and sizing. Pullover is knit flat from the bottom up in pieces and seamed together with set-in sleeves and square neckline. Perennial from Kelbourne Woolens is a delightfully soft blend of superwash Merino, Suri alpaca, and nylon that can be hand or machine-washed. The panel and yoke pattern is in chart form only.
