Celtic Birds Jacket by Deborah Cowell
This lovely jacket is great for fair isle beginners as there are never more than 2 colours in each row. This is knitted in one piece to the armholes and then divded.
Deborah used Palette for the sample, but we recommend this is knitted using Coast as this will give it a fabulous drape.
