What type of thing do you want to make? I’m about to start my first Fair Isle sweater, but I practiced first by making a Fair Isle dishcloth ( ) to get the hang of carrying 2 yarns.
Something a little more substantial than a dishcloth (but not as big as a sweater) would be a hat or socks (if you’re already used to making socks, if not I definitely would NOT choose that as a first Fair Isle). Elizabeth Zimmermann has some Fair Isle hat and sweater patterns that are pretty straightforward in several of her books if you (or the library) have one.
OR, here are a couple of sweater patterns I’m considering:
Lusekofte (I ordered the kit for this one and will most likely try this out first)
I’m trying to get together some knitters on KH for a Fair Isle Knit Along. I plan to start my project around Feb 1. I’ll message you if the KAL gets off the ground so you can pop in if you’re interested. Welcome to KH!!! :cheering:
