pdf Pattern for The Hope Sweater by Elizabeth Lovick
copyright Elizabeth Lovick 2006

The motifs from this sweater are taken from a Robe of Glory , the blanket that was given to the first child in some Orkney households. The pattern runs to 13 sides, with plenty of helpful notes. It is suitable as a first Fair Isle sweater.
