Knitting Techniques | Fair Isle Style

It’s almost that time of year again, when all those cosy knits come out from the depths of the wardrobe. This year, rather than wearing the same old jumpers, why not knit something new with Mary Jane Mucklestone’s new book, Fair Isle Style.


With 20 gorgeous designs to knit, Fair Isle Style is bursting with beautiful patterns for warm winter woollies. The book offers a collection of projects from a variety of established and new knitwear designers. By taking traditional Fair Isle knitwear designs, Fair Isle Style gives them a contemporary look through the use of modern colour, creating stylish knitted essentials for today’s knitters.

From beautifSocksul cowls, warm gloves and mittens to pretty patterned socks and knitted cardigans, this book will teach you how to make all those much-loved knitted garments for your winter wardrobe. Each project includes a colour chart, illustration, and clear step-by-step diagrams. There is also a handy techniques section at the back with all of the stitches you need to know to complete the projects in this book.

Fair Isle Style also includes a Design Notebook that takes you through the history of Fair Isle knitting, and explains how to hold the yarn, how to choose colours and which yarns to use. The book is packed with tips and ideas for your Fair Isle knitting too!

Gloves 2So, as the nights grow longer and the days get colder, why not knit yourself a pair of Lumesadu Gloves, a Fara Raglan jumper, or even some Scandi Sukkalegs leg warmers.
