I love playing with color, and Fair Isle crochet is such a fun way to do just that. With this book, not only will you learn how to create 8 stunning projects, but you will learn the basics of this technique as well. Now you will be able to make your very own Fair Isle crochet masterpieces.
All the projects in this book are at an easy level, so even a beginner can succeed. I gave a go to the Laurel Leaf design and found it easy and fun. It was so cool to watch the image appear as I crocheted away!
Only one or two colors are used in each row. On two color rows you crochet over the unused color which means both sides of your finished piece will be ready for their close-up. No catching your fingers in floats on your blanket, or your hair pins in floats on your hat!
Now you can use this nifty technique to make home decor that matches your style and to impress your friends. Once you have learned how to make Fair Isle crochet you can even create your own charts. Then you can make personalized items for your loved ones.
You can purchase your own copy of this book – and maybe another copy or two for your crocheting friends – from Amazon HERE.
