Fair Isle Knitting Tutorial step by step

It's a knitters dream - knitting with 2 colours

Such beautiful hearts, stars, criss-crosses and dots can be created with this stranded knitting technique. Fair Isle knitting can be on the bucket list for a long time though, as it looks and feels so tough.

But take it slowly, one step at a time, pick a symmetrical pattern with only two colours and you're good to go.

As you can see with this pattern I like to start with something that only lasts 5 rows, because then you can breathe again and start knitting and purling with a plain colour for the rest of the project.
