Instagram has a hashtag #fairislefriday where you can see everyone’s Fair Isle knits. It is something we like. Cathy made this little Fair Isle hat for her granddaughter. The butterscotch is avocado dyed wool. The pink is mohair and the yellows and creams are merino. The other wool is Border Leicester. Fair Isle knitting can be very satisfying because you can make patterns and contrast colours . With a hat it is important to mark the beginning of a row and then to make sure your pattern will work across the number of stitches you have.
Very Pink Knits will get you going if you haven’t tried Fair Isle before.
