I have never tried Fair Isle knitting before, but went on a day workshop and had a wonderful time. We learnt a bit about the history; colour choices; yarn and then different ways to hold the two balls of wool. Then we chose our patterns from a book, copied them out on squared paper, chose our colours and started knitting.
We had to use dpns - five needles - but is was so fiddley, I would rather try circular needles, with the magic loop method.
Does anyone knit fair isle and what needles do you like to use?
I would post a picture, but we only managed to do just under an inch of knitting, but I can see the pattern emerging!
