Fair Isle was the reason I got into knitting in the first place! I was obsessed with those wonderful ski sweaters, hats, and mittens. I guess I was really obsessed with color and how colors play together! Two decades later I’m still knitting fair isle, obsessing with color, and playing with yarn!

This is the perfect 1st Fair Isle project. I have designed the chart so that the knitter moves from simple color work in chart A to just slightly more complicated in the rest of the charts. The concentric circle decrease happens on non-colorwork rows for easy decreasing!
