Valley Yarns 639 Plesti Fair Isle Pullover and Hat
The Valley Yarns Plesti Fair Isle Pullover and Hat set features a traditional combination of fair isle pattern and color but encourages you to explore and play! Worked bottom up in rounds with seamless raglan shaping, this slightly oversized sweater lets you get all of the colorwork out of the way before any shaping happens, and the hat features decreases that mimic the raglan shaping on the sweater and a rockin' pom-pom! Stick with a more traditional palette for a sweater that’s great at the office, or for an afternoon at the ski lodge, and go wild with color for the hat.
