This is a free pattern designed by Hazel Tindell, who designed it for Shetland Wool Week. I did a Fair Isle workshop at the beginning of the year which I found invaluable but this is my first Fair Isle project and I really enjoyed it. It's not as complicated as it looks and urge any intermediate knitter to give it a go. I think going to a class is a great way to learn but there are also books, my favourite is The Very Easy Guide To Fair Isle by Lynne Watterson or You Tube, my favourite knitting tutorials are by Very Pink.
I used Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper weight, if you're interested in the exact colours I used you can find the list here. There are five colours and I'm pretty sure I have enough left over to knit another one, I did use more of the brown but I'll weigh them and work out what I need.
I've also finished the Hermione's Everyday Socks for my friend's birthday, they are perfect for her, Kerry is Harry Potter mad, loves rainbow colours and sparkles. She absolutely loves them and squealed with joy when she opened them.
I used Lang Yarns Mille Colori Socks and Lace Lux, I think the colours and the sparkles are gorgeous but I don't think I'll knit with it again. The yarn was very irregular going from 4ply to chunky to lace where I thought it may even break. It was worth it though as Kerry thought they were wonderful!!!
Have a great Halloween weekend.
