Fair Isle is one of those wonders in life where the finished result looks more complicated than the process that created it actually is. Although Fair Isle patterns can contain a multitude of colours, there’s never usually more than two in any one row.
This comprehensive guide walks you through the stages of knitting Fair Isle patterns and offers ideas for creating bespoke designs.
The book is clearly laid out, providing a comprehensive reference guide, and it’s attractive to leaf through when looking for inspiration. It has a skills section that demystifies techniques, and chapters on colour theory and design principles to help you choose the most appealing colour and pattern combinations.
