I'm dreaming of an isle of fair
For whatever reason, I'm all about the fair isle. I'm currently working on a fair isle sweater for myself, where I made the chart myself. I just couldn't find what I was looking for from established patterns.
People just don't seem to make/wear hand knit fair isle sweaters anymore. The one's mass-produced and for sale in the dept store doesn't count.
My favorite is the fair isle stitched yoke sweaters. My mom made both my sister and I each one back in high school (80's). She also crocheted us granny square vests, but I'm not revisting that trend anytime soon.
Make sure you search ETSY to see these lovely items!
