This sweater is just the perfect project for Fair Isle experts. Your experience in knitting Fair Isle pattern should be intermediate, because Krista is worked in separate pieces and sewn afterwards. So you have to work the pattern on WS rows, too.

But on the other hand the cut is very simple: you work back and front part just straight ahead, without any shapings.
