Fair Isle Beanie

Karin has finished her beautiful Fair Isle beanie in forest colours. So good to look at. It is knitted in two ply Shetland wool so a soft, fine knit. Fair Isle has a rhythm to it and the colour changes and combinations can be inspiring. It is what it makes it easy to knit: watching the patterns form and take shape.

Ella Gordon‘s blog gives some good , quick insight into Fair Isle knitting. There is quite a history and a tradition.

Start Knitting has some good Fair Isle and colourwork patterns for beanies.

Rokolee helps you get better at using two colours with her video. She explains what works for her.
