printed pattern booklet PLUS complimentary digital download
Patterns for two classic men's garments: the Machrihanish Vest (designed by Kate Davies) and the Bruton Hoody (designed by Jen Arnall-Culliford) plus an essay by Jim Arnall-Culliford exploring the perils of giving and receiving knitwear.
This pattern features traditional OXO motifs; uses Jamieson and Smith’s wonderful Shetland Heritage yarn, and is knit in the traditional Shetland way — in the round with steeks. But though a Fairisle vest is, in so many ways, a truly classic piece of knitwear, I think it can also look really sharp and contemporary. Men’s vest patterns are rarely shaped, but the Machrihanish pattern includes optional waist tapering to create a neat and stylish masculine fit.
he Bruton hoody is an interesting take on a classic, masculine design: involving knitterly detail in the cable panel, but remaining simple and wearable. The hoody is knitted in one piece from start to finish, with the pockets and sleeve stitches picked up as you go. Tricky to explain, but very, very simple to do!
