Finn Valley

7.00

Finn Valley is worked in pieces from the bottom up. The back and sleeves are worked in reverse stockinette stitch, and the front is worked in an all-over cable pattern. Due to the nature of the cable repeat, the front and back measurements differ from one another, and some of the sizes may share the same front and back stitch counts. In the schematic, an all over circumference is given, as well as individual front and back measurements.
