26 Projects with a Modern Twist
This collection of easy Fair Isle knits from renowned knitwear designer Martin Storey has 26 designs for you, your home, and your friends and family—all of which use only two colors per row, well within the grasp of even a novice Fair Isle knitter!
Patterns include a range of softly colored cushions, some in contemporary geometric motifs and others with a more traditional theme, all in delicious color blends guaranteed to enhance any sofa, bed, or chair. Martin's stunning small Christmas Tree blanket is a show-stopper, with little Fair Isle and garter stitch trees appliquéd to a knitted square in a rainbow of rich toning colors.
A couple of sleeveless slipovers feature a Fair Isle border above the welt, with a simple softly blended stripe pattern above. A lovely shrug and cowl have a traditional Fair Isle pattern picked out with embroidery. Cowls, scarves, hats, gloves, and socks feature a range of different Fair Isle motifs mixed with soft stripes or traditional "bird's eye" patterns, and a pretty knitted bag and cute iPad and iPhone covers make great additional projects!
