Enniskillen is worked in the round from the bottom up with steeks to create openings for the armholes and V-neck. The lower body ribbing is worked flat in two pieces, before joining in the round, to create side vents.

This garment is meant to have a slightly cropped fit, with the lower edge roughly even with the wearer’s natural waist. The larger sizes have taller armholes and shorter lower bodies to prevent the overall length from becoming too long.
Regarding the yardage requirements: Cricket comes in an ample 100 gram / 415 yard skein. The yardage requirements for the contrast colors do not use all of the full skeins.
