First Faire Isle Project

Done before I knew what Faire Isle was, when I was about 13. I had a chart for embroidering over regular knitting and tried this instead. You can see I didn’t know you could carry behind more than a single stitch, so moved the yarn up/down every stitch. It’s in sock wool or finer, on the smallest needles I had, I think 14.

    Well done. Did you knit back and forth? Very pretty.

      Yep, back and forth. You can imagine my delight when I discovered knitting Faire Isle in the round, with proper instructions.

  2. Nice job!

    Funny how that works, eh? doing stuff before you know better 😉 Worked out well! – Roberta
