Fall for Nederland



























Nederland meets Charlie Brown, with these typical fall colors from the '70's and contrasting color finishing.

Classic Elite Princess

3476 Baronets Brown
3415 Superior Spruce
3425 Tawny Chestnut
3484 Milord's Madder
3416 Natural

On this version I began the color chart just one round after the ribbing, so the fair isle section hangs a little lower than in the grey vest pictured in Knitscene Fall '08. I'm happy to report that Miss Sophia loves the custom design!

Oh thank you all. I always want to do things in 1,000 different ways, so there may be more Nederlands on the horizon!
