Boasting geometric patterns and rich, natural colors, the knits of Fair Isle have roots in the fashions of Viking invaders, Norwegian immigrants, and Spanish sailors. Don starts with samples and charts for 28 traditional designs and then moves on to simple instructions for 13 authentic garments, including jumpers, pullovers, and scarves.
