Pattern Description:

There is nothing like Fair Isle to give the knitter the creativity to combine vibrant colors with stunning patterns.

Fair Isle is traditionally done using one yarn in each hand. This sounds intimidating, but it's easier than you thinkand far more addicting than you have ever bargained for.

This pattern will take you through Fair Isle, step by step, beginning to end.

Let's get started.


5 stitches per inch. Note that this pattern assumes that you are using wool, which will stretch when blocked. If you are using another fiber, make a larger size.

Suggested yarn:

150 yards of Worsted weight
