Fair Isle can be a bit daunting if you haven’t tried it before, but this vibrant, summery tank top is an ideal introduction to the technique. The repeating motifs means you’ll get the hang of it pretty quickly – just follow the chart and make sure you don’t strand the yarns not in use too tightly at the back of your work.
Designer Rosee Woodland says, “The yarn – Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK – is lovely to work with. It gives fabulous stitch definition, which makes it ideal for Fair Isle garments, and it comes in a large range of shades so you can be really inventive with colour combinations.”
