Inspired Fair Isle Knits


In this irresistible companion to her first book, Inspired Cable Knits, Ellis once again borrows from traditional techniques to create an unprecedented collection of gorgeous, wearable garments. Using the basic technique of Fair Isle knitting (small geometric motifs worked with just two colours repeated in a row), she creates an earthy, modern and timeless collection of designs divided into chapters entitled Water, Air, Fire and Earth. Using unconventional placement of Fair Isle patterning, such as at the cuff or shoulder and asymmetrical or striped colour placement, Ellis creates a wide variety of moods, movements and graphic impact. And Inspired Fair Isle Knits isnt just about Fair Isle knitting; it combines the basic method with other knitting techniques such as cables, lace patterning, felting and even pleats. The result is intricate-looking pieces that require only intermediate skills. Inspired Fair Isle Knits will also challenge experienced knitters with surprising takes on the Fair Isle patterned sweater, including a halter top, a tank and a wrap. For lovers of traditional patterns with contemporary flair, for intermediate knitters looking to expand their techniques and skills and for anyone seeking lush and colourful new patterns, this is the ideal addition to any collection.
