Knitting
June 2012
Jamieson's DK
DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) ?
26 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in Fair Isle
US 3 - 3.25 mm

Finished size: 32 (34½, 37, 39½, 41¾, 44¼, 46¾, 49 ¼)" / 81.5 (87.5, 94, 100.5, 106, 112.5, 119, 125) cm

With its striking color combinations and elaborate motifs, Fair Isle knitting can seem overwhelming. Join me for my new online Craftsy class, The Fair Isle Vest: Stranded and Steeked, and learn the techniques that take this dazzling form of stranded colorwork from daunting to doable.
In ten lessons, you’ll have the skills you need for any fair isle project.
Once you enroll in the class, it’s yours for life, to watch at your own pace, as many times as you like. If you want to see a technique again, just rewind. If you want to make notes about a certain technique, you can, right there in your video. My class is interactive, so you can ask questions, and get answers from your classmates and from me. Join us!
