Use hand dyed sock yarn for the main color and a couple of leftover balls from other socks that look good with your main color. Look in your stash…it will save you buying 3 skeins of yarn for a 1 skein project. You need to do a small amount of simple Fair Isle….but mostly Garter Stitch so you have plenty of rest and relaxation between challenges. This is a good first time fair isle project for that reason. The yarn I used for this sweater is available on my etsy site
