You’re protected against the arctic chill when you work van Dillen’s Fair Isle yoke pullover in Cascade Yarns’ so-soft Spuntaneous Worsted. Worked flat from the bottom up, the body and sleeves are worked separately before joined to work the yoke in the round. The edges are kept tidy in 1x1 ribing, and the neck trim is a folded under stockinette stitch tube.


Fair Isle (/fɛəraɪ̯l/) is a traditional knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colors. It is named after Fair Isle, one of the Shetland Islands. Traditional Fair Isle patterns have a limited palette of five colors, use only two colors per row, are worked in the round, and limit the length of a run of any particular color.

There are two available "active" colors of yarn; one is drawn through to make the knit stitch, and the other is simply held behind the piece, carried as a loose strand of yarn behind the just-made stitch. To avoid "loose" strands larger than 3-5 stitches, the yarn not in use can be "caught" by the yarn in use without this being seen on the front of the work

Some people use the term "Fair Isle" to refer to any color-work knitting, others use the term "stranded color-work” for the generic technique, and reserve the term "Fair Isle" for the characteristic patterns of the Shetland Islands.
