Review

If you've been nervous about taking the plunge into stranded colourwork, this is the perfect introduction. With 11 designs, this has minimal instruction but focuses on starting small and building up to more involved projects. Our favourite designs include the stunning Eileann scarflette and mitts.-The Knitter

this book is not worth the money. the title is very misleading. I thought it was about the basics of Fair Isle knitting-something for a beginner, but all it has is patterns-no instructions. You need to be an accomplished knitter to use the book. And for the price, i thought it would have a lot more to offer.
All though the patterns are alright-nothing stands out. There are definitely better books out there for the money. I will do lot more research before spending so much money for nothing.

While this is not an instruction book on how to do fair isle knitting, it is a book with easy to do patterns. A couple of pages with how-to's on fair isle would have been nice.
That being said, I love this book and the patterns within. There are patterns for the beginning fair isle knitter as well as intermediates. For the experienced knitter, they are fun and quick knits. The layout and photos in the book are very good. Pattern instructions are well written. I'm currently knitting the scarf and mitts on the cover and they are gorgeous. In my opinion, an adventurous beginning fair isle knitter would have no trouble with this pattern. It's a fun and interesting knit.
Learn to knit fair isle from your local yarn shop or a different book, then consider the pretty and easy patterns in this book.

Although I have been knitting for many, many years and can do complicated patterns, I had never done Fair Isle before and the first few attempts left much to be desired. This book is excellent in its description of step by step instructions and takes the mystery out of Fair Isle knitting.

I really like this book. I hesitated because I thought it was a bit pricey. I purchased it anyway and I believe it is a great addition to my library.
