I've been craving making a fair isle sweater like one of the one's my dear ol' mum made me back in the early 80's. I search LYSs to no avail. So when I stumbled upon this book online, I mentioned to hubby that I would like to have it someday. Well, he went ahead and bought it for me.
I've looked inside, and it's going to work out just nicely!
Boasting geometric patterns and rich, natural colors, the knits of Fair Isle have roots in the fashions of Viking invaders, Norwegian immigrants, and Spanish sailors. Don starts with samples and charts for 28 traditional designs and then moves on to simple instructions for 13 authentic garments, including jumpers, pullovers, and scarves.
