5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem 28 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is a great find not only because it will guide you through learning Fair Isle (if a novice) but also contains the most extensive set of individual patterns I have yet come across. The book is a bit dated (most photography is in black and white and there is some rather awful 70s modelling) but is a great read for all that. Great if you want to combine your own patterns rather than follow a pre-made chart.
