Classic Fair Isle

The motifs for this classic fair isle pullover came from the wonderful directory by Mary Jane Mucklestone. The wool is Knit Picks "Palette" fingering and the main color is navy (that appears very black in the photos.) Knit in the traditional method of two colors per round, with armholes and neckline cut in.

Unbelievably stellar workmanship. It's beautiful.

Just wonderful.

Your stranded colour work is always spectacular! I think the colourway you selected of primary colours provides a stark contrast, highlighting the patterns beautifully. The blue is so nice - I love it. The addition of the bands at the top and cuff of the sleeves is a perfect addition. I am a big fan of the Scandinavian star motif (I prefer it to the OXO Fair Isle). Thank you for sharing this.

Lots of color without being gaudy. Festive. Beautiful job!
