Easy Fair Isle Knitting by Martin Storey
Easy Fair Isle Knitting is a collection of easy Fair Isle knits from renowned knitwear designer Martin Storey. The collection includes 26 designs for you, your home, and your friends and family—all of which use only two colors in a row. Designs are well within the grasp of even a novice Fair Isle knitter. Martin has included 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 a plain sofa, bed or chair. His stunning small Christmas Tree blanket is a show-stopper with its little Fair Isle and garter stitch trees appliquéd to knitted square in a rainbow rich toning colors.
A couple of sleeveless slipovers feature a Fair Isle border above the welt, with a softly blended simple striped 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. A pretty knitted bag, cute i-pad and i-phone covers make great additional projects.
