Fabulous Fairisle will appeal to all fairisle knitters who are looking to create their own individual designs.
The book is divided into several sections starting with the history of the Shetland Isles and the knitting traditions.
The next section is a pattern dictionary with charts and swatches for knitters who wish to design their own pattern combinations.
The next section covers traditional Shetland patterns and there are swatches and charts.
Chunky Knit designs are next followed by Colourings. This demonstrates how the same pattern can look very different depending on the colours used and there are photos of various swatches.
Last, but not least, there are six sweaters to knit together with instructions of how to adapt your choice of patterns to work.
