Fair Isle Finished

I finished my first fair isle sweater and I'm very pleased with it.



I started knitting it at my lunch hour and then worked on it at home so it didn't take very long to knit. I loved seeing how the colour patterning would look outside of my head and it was a great way to use of half skeins from my stash. Since this sweater was in a larger size I did the four decreases noted in the Opinionated Knitter.



I think I may not have carried the yarn as loosely as I should when I began the fair isle but overall I'm happy with this sweater and will definitely knit another one or two.

  • It's tough to get the tension just right - it looks like you did a really nice job! I especially like the detail of the little stripes at the cuff. I had hoped to repeat part of the pattern on the cuffs of mine, but I'm not sure I have enough yarn - this is a nice solution!
