Olivia - designed by Kate Wallace

Kate Wallace is often inspired by historical or vintage knitwear. The 1923 portrait 'The Fair Isle Jumper' by Stanley Cursiter in the City of Edinburgh Council Collection, caught her eye and voila - Olivia. Here you can see the model Olivia also wearing the Fair Isle sweater Lady Franklin another of Kate's designs
