Fair Isle Vest

Below is a vest I knitted last year for my son – my first attempt at Fair Isle knitting.

It was challenging make, especially when it comes to weaving in ends, which I absolutely hate. And this time there were too many! It took my long time to finish this off.

I feel like this vest could’ve been a bit longer, it looks rather squarish. But given that it was my first attempt I am rather pleased with myself.

I am not sure, however, if I will ever do something in Fair Isle again. I know effects can be stunning when done right but I don’t think I have the patience to do it, ha ha ha 🙂



When it comes to yarns, anything I can put my hands on will finally make a way to my hooks and needles. I like to experiment a lot and notoriously run four or five projects at the same time - but that's part of the fun!
