What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The 'crazier' the color combinations the better. Don't be too conservative in your color choices!! While Fair Isle is a traditional style of knitting, the colors don't need to be!! :)
What you will need
Worsted Weight yarn: Wool Ease (red) and Sorrento (lavendar). Size 8 US 16" round needles plus (5) Size 8 US dpn. Gauge is 5 stitches to the inch
