George Bain didn’t only create patterns for family and students. Occasionally he designed for craftspeople or commercial companies. This jumper was made by Gander Crafts, based in Muir of Ord, close to Bain’s home in Drumnadrochit. But this may be just a coincidence. We haven’t yet been able to find out when it was produced. Perhaps it was several decades after they moved away.

The jumper is machine-knitted using a brown tweed-coloured background. The design is of repeated green interlace panels, separated by smaller green motifs. The sleeves have an all-over check design in the same colours. The front, back and sleeves are hand-sewn together.

This item was gifted to the museum by Bain’s grandchildren. It seems likely that it was bought by them long after the George and Jessie Bain moved to England, in 1952.
