New Book Review
Fair Isle Style : 20 Fresh Designs for a Classic Technique
by Mary Jane Mucklestone
If you have always been fascinated by fair isle but afraid to try it, this book will take that fear away. It has lovely updated and wearable designs. Some of the projects are small such as the baby booties and hats, and some are more traditional fair isle such as cardigans, skirts and dresses. They are designed in the traditional knitting style working in the round and using steeks with beautiful color charts to go with each pattern. You don't have to be afraid of not knowing fair isle technique because in the back of the book there is a wonderful tutorial and hints are given through out the book.
