Fair Isle Knitting

Hello gents!

I don't know the ID of the gentleman who does the wonderful fair isle knitting on here but maybe someone could bring this link to his attention.

Found a wonderful vintage fair isle pattern online. Not sure if it'll be his cup of tea or not, but here's the link anyway.

Thanks for finding this fair isle sweater pattern! I am on my second pair of fair isle socks right now, both pair were knitted top-down, and two-at-a-time on the "Magic Loop". I have really freaked out the ladies in my knitting group by working with four yarns at once.

Thanks for posting this vintage pattern. I've printed it and will have a look at it more carefully. The problem with these patterns is that they usually fit skinny young guys! But, of course, alterations can be easily made. I am always looking for interesting FI patterns with good colour combinations.
