Scotland's 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. This volume is profusely illustrated with color photographs, plus drawings and charts that illustrate the art's history, patterns, and techniques.
Besides a brief history of Fair Isle knitting, the book contains thorough discussions of patterning, color, technique, and creating your own designs.  Includes a pattern library of motifs, and a "wardrobe" of garment patterns.
Whether you are new to fair isle techniques, or an old hand, this is a classic that belongs on your bookshelf.
