Fair Isle knitting may look complicated, but it really is easy to do once you understand the basics.
Author Lynne Watterson starts beginners off with the basics of two-color knitting: reading a Fair Isle chart; what to do with all the fiddly yarn ends, and getting to grips with circular needles.
The main chapters feature a selection of beautiful stitch patterns.
Each pattern has clear instructions in both written and chart form, and these are cross-referenced to a comprehensive guide to abbreviations.
Each of the main chapters includes simple, stylish projects demonstrating ways to use the beautifully shaded Fair Isle patterns - from chic accessories and the latest fashion looks to contemporary cushion covers and throws.
