We love this finer knitting for Fair Isle, it really has fantastic stitch definition in monochrome, and it’s a great Fair Isle adventure using charts, and black as the background colour. Stunning and perfect for day to evening, country walks and pub lunches, nights at the theatre or every day at the office!
