classic fair isle,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Knitting Classic Style: 35 Modern Designs Inspired by Fashion's Archives (Hardcover)
What makes this book special for me is her fair isle cardigan updated with a slim silhouette and set-in sleeves but otherwise knit in the traditional way using border patterns and shetland yarn. Other items I might knit are her shawl, faroese sweater, layered skater's top in lace, her Setesdal sweater modified with set-in sleeves. This book is one of the better ones I've seen this year and includes a 3 page section on special techniques. One quibble is that her yarns don't have any kind of indication as to their size category (sport, worsted, etc). Also my copy came without an outer cover and I have no idea if this is missing or was never made.

I don't think there is an outer cover. My copy and all the copies I've seen in stores do not have one. I actually prefer this, as I tend to lose the dust covers anyway.
