Overview

Like any challenging thing, Fair Isle knitting is both satisfying ... and a tiny bit addictive. Fiber artist Mary Jane Mucklestone invites you to get just as obsessed as she is by these intricate multicolored designs from the Shetland Islands. Then use steeking to transform your knit tube into a flattering and on-trend garment. Mary Jane designed this beautiful sweater vest just for Craftsy and chose traditional Shetland yarns to create it. You'll build your stranded colorwork skills round by round, then pick up your scissors and take a mad leap into steeking. It's true - you will cut into your knitting. Meanwhile, Mary Jane will encourage you to commit a multitude of knitting sins, including knotting your yarn joins, not weaving in ends, and ... hold onto your hat ... ignoring mistakes.
