This review is from: Book of Fair Isle Knitting (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book about Fair Isle knitting. It has a fascinating history of the Fair Isle techniques and the lifestyle of the early knitters. There are many traditional pattern motifs and colour theory as it relates to Fair Isle. It has clear instructions on all the techniques required to knit traditional Fairisle patterns, including circular knitting, steeks, grafts, increasing, decreasing and finishing. For those who like to work from a commercial pattern there is a wonderful selection of designs to tempt you to have a go.
This is much more than just a collection of patterns, it's a knitters dream.
