Description

Knitters will first learn to read colour charts and then gain the confidence to use the patterns to create their own stunning projects and garments. A unique "selector" at the beginning of the book makes it easy to choose a design you like. Organised by row and stitch count, each of the patterns is accompanied by an easy-to-follow chart indicating both the pattern stitches and the colours used, and each sample is shown charted in an alternative colourway. A "mix and match" feature lets you combine patterns with confidence. Includes guidance on yarn choices and special techniques unique to Fair Isle knitting.
