Top knit tip

To achieve the Fair Isle effect, you will need to work with two colours at once. Don’t worry, this isn’t as complicated as it sounds. Carry the unused yarn across the back of your work as you go. Don’t twist the two colours together; instead drop one and pick up the other as needed, always keeping them in the same relative position.
