Basic Fair Isle Techniques with Sarah Peasley
The Fair Isle technique has been around for centuries, but can be learned in a matter of hours. Learn to read charts like a pro. Practice knitting in the round with two colors while trapping those pesky floats. Discover the beauty of corrugated ribbing. Hold your breath while you cut open a crocheted steek. There's nothing to it. What are you waiting for?
