Scottish Fair Isle is celebrated the world over for its distinctive, stranded-color knitting, and Alice Starmore is famous for her expertise in designing and instructing knitters in this appealing regional tradition.
Starmores richly illustrated guide offers both beginning and advanced knitters a complete workshop in the Fair Isle style. It not only explores the arts history, patterns, and traditional techniques but also encourages knitters to develop their own creativity. Starmore explains the traditional Fair Isle techniques of circular knitting and presents detailed tutorials on incorporating classic motifs, exploring color schemes, and creating unique patterns and designs.
She shares fourteen of her own original designs, including patterns for cardigans, vests, fishermens sweaters, hats, gloves, and mittens. More than 250 photographs, drawings, and easy-to-follow charts illustrate sources of inspiration, simple instructions, and spectacular results.
Knitting devotees agree: If you have only one book of Fair Isle patterns, this is the one to have!
