Since finishing my first fair isle vest last month I’ve worn it almost every day, making me wonder how I ever managed without one! Vest really are such a wonderful garment for layering at this time of year and now that my Cruden is finished, it’s time to move onto Bruntsfield. While I figure out yarn choices I’ve been looking at the finished projects on Ravelry, so thought for today I’d share some inspiration.
The Bruntsfield vest pattern uses one of Ysolda’s favourite yarns, Shetland Organics wool from Uradale Farm.
Mairwen’sBruntsfield was one of Ysolda’s favourite knits-in-the-wild, when she spotted her at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival last year. The greens and natural colours she’s chosen are so beautiful!
Jette245 chose Jamieson and Smith Heritage Naturals for her Bruntsfield project, and it really was a wonderful choice! Those sheep colours are going to be perfect for any fair isle project.
It’s wonderful when knitters use colour choices that are very different from the original, and it’s something that can be quite challenging. Nzmoby has done a great job with this high contrast version.
We love fiddlehead’s stylish Bruntsfield, in a monochrome colour palette that’s going to work with pretty much every outfit…
