Creating the Effect With Fair Isle

A Discusion in detail how the combination of colour and motifs can be used to create the desired effect in your Fair Isle knitting. We will be looking at the difference a closed and open pattern can make, as well as how to place your colours to make your Fair Isle glow, stand out, fade, stripe or blend in places. Touching on the effects one colour can have on another and how we wash and block knitting to create different effects. I will also walk you through how I have created a few of my designs including my thought process and the reason for choosing each colour. This will be a sketchbook style class so we will not be knitting, but planning how we think about Fair Isle for our future projects.
